 ABOUT THE TITLE
This beautiful book offers a striking and unusual view of a wide array of Indian art. It highlights – close up and in colour – outstanding examples of design workmanship and craft in dramatic sculptures of metal stone and wood as well as sumptuous paintings and textiles.
The book opens with an introduction asking ‘What is Indian art?’ This is followed by a series of chapters showing how the functions and purposes of each object reflects its cultural context and determines the choice of image. By illustrating the complete artefact as well as exceptional features through the use of enlarged details – sometimes virtually invisible to the naked eye – intriguing insights and unusual comparisons can be made. The selection of details evokes the hand and eye of the most accomplished Indian craftsmen over thousands of years.
Ideal as a souvenir or introduction to any museum or gallery visit this book will also provide endless creative inspiration.
AUTHOR:
A. L. Dallapiccola is Honorary Professor at the University of Edinburgh and makes regular research visits to India. She is the author of Indian Love Poetry Hindu Visions of the Sacred >i>Hindu Myths and A Dictionary of Hindu Lore and Legend.
