Chitralakshana Story of Indian Paintings
Chitralakshana Story of Indian Paintings
Description
From The Book

Chitralakshana
Is the title I have given to the story of Indian painting which I have written for you. It is a story and not a history. For, when our forefathers painted pictures they never put down dates. So I have only talked of eras-'prehistoric', 'Gupta', 'Medieval', etc. all dates of paintings and sculptures are guess-work. And your guess is as good as mine. Words of praise too are not very necessary for paintings. The men who filled large spaces, with colours, lines and figures, did so from love of painting heroes and heroines, animals, birds and flowers. I offer this album, then, for the pleasure of all your big-eyed young, who have the sense of wonder in your eyes

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
Намаскар! Честно говоря, сомневался. Но сегодня получил свой заказ. Порадовала упаковка, упаковано всё очень тщательно и аккуратно. Большое спасибо, как раз подарок к Новому Году! Namaskar! Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
