Afghanistan: Treasure chest of early Asian culture
By Hope Ngo writer (CNN) When Taleban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar ordered the destruction of statues that he says are "un-Islamic", he also turned his back on a culture that is unique because of its geography. For centuries, Afghanistan was a key stop on the legendary Silk Routes that linked east and west. Its mountainous terrain sheltered travelers whose caravans carried Chinese silks and Indian ivories. The Silk Route was also fertile ground for traveling Buddhist monks in search of converts. One historian notes: "In the early centuries of the Christian era, Eastern Afghanistan was full of lively Buddhist monasteries, stupas and monks." Islam was not introduced to the region until at least the ninth century. It was around the fourth or fifth centuries that monks are believed to have carved the Buddhas of Bamiyan. One of the statues stands at 58 meters, while the other is at 38 meters. The larger of the pair is considered the world's largest stone statue and the tallest image of the buddha.

Afganistan Human Rights Report
Afghanistan Superstitions Afghanistan Religion Afghani Riddles ... Afghani Parables Afghan Culture Cultural Life In Afghanistan Afghanistan has a rich cultural heritage covering more than 5,000 years. Because of almost complete isolation from the outside world, however, little in art, literature, or architecture was produced between the 16th and early 20th centuries. Because most Afghans live outside the cities, their mode of living can be described as that of a peasant tribal society. Kinship is the basis of social life and determines the patriarchal character of the community. Religion plays a very important role. Archaeological research carried out since 1922 has uncovered many fine works of art of the pre-Islamic and Islamic periods. A revival of the traditional arts and an interest in new forms of expression have given a new dynamism to artistic creation. Of the new painters, some draw direct inspiration from the Herat school of the 15th-century Timurid period; others are influenced by Western styles. Through government initiative, some of the old monuments of architectural value are being restored and redecorated. The School of Fine Arts was established in Kabul in the 1930s. In architecture, the traditional Timurid techniques are preserved, particularly in the design of the exterior walls of mosques or tombs. Handicrafts include the world-renowned Afghan carpets and copper utensils.

    Re-building Culture in Afghanistan

    A local specialist in the woven treasures of the Silk Road is Alexandra Copeland . She and her husband, Leigh, are renowned dealers and collectors of Central Asian textiles.
    Since Alexandra bought her first handmade rug in Herat, Afghanistan, in 1972, she and Leigh have made 35 extensive visits to the region, but those visits have been curtailed by war and politics in the last 10 years. Just before leaving for her latest trip to Pakistan, she spoke in her inner Melbourne studio to Julie Copeland about the various regional styles of weaving - linked by what was the Silk Road across Central Asia. And Julie Copeland speaks to Professor Rafi Samizay , another exiled Afghani intellectual, who is currently Professor of Architecture at Washington State University. He will be returning to his home town, Kabul, along with a group of engineers, planners and architects, to play a vital role in rebuilding the city’s culture. Christopher Kremmer spoke with Julie earlier this year about his wonderful book on the vital, historic thread they weave throughout Islamic Central Asia. Part of the proceeds from the sales of Chris’s book

    Afghanistan Afghanistan WARFARE AND CIVIC CULTURE
    The Soviet-Afghan war has caused grave injury to the civic culture of Afghanistan. The destruction and disruption wrought by the magnitude of the lethal technology employed was exponentially greater than that of any previous invasion in the past. In addition to extensive ecological damage, including the vicious destruction of Kabul that dwarfs anything previously experienced, the war stretched taught the fabric of the society, threatening to undermine its confidence. National traits once honored hallmarks of Afghan character were jeopardized. Tolerance for others. Forthrightness. Aversion to fanatics. Respect for women. Loyalty to colleagues and classmates. Dislike for ostentation. Commitment to academic freedom. All were compromised.
