Sonya Lee is Assistant Professor of Chinese Art and Visual Culture at University of Southern California in Los Angeles (U.S.). She specializes in religious art and architecture of pre-modern China, with particular focus on the material culture of medieval Chinese Buddhism along the ancient Silk Road. Currently, she is completing a book entitled “Surviving Nirvana: Death and Transfiguration of the Buddha in Chinese Art,” in which she discusses how the Buddha’s absence was made into a simple yet powerful allegory of survival in pre-modern China through images of the Buddha’s nirvana.
