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

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.
Nihal, New Zealand
The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
