“The importance of the book by Dr. Coomaraswamy can hardly be overestimated, for, not only does it throw into clear relief the essential significance of all phases of the art of the Orient, but… a call to the West to cease its preoccupation with surfaces and return to reality, albeit by the path primarily of its own scientific concepts which art and religion must come to embody, thus achieving an understanding not only of the art of the East but also of itself. I may add that I fully believe that forces in this direction are already at work”.
