Look Inside the Book
Description

Contents:

 

1. Why exhibit works of art?  2. The Christian and oriental, or true, philosophy of art  3. Is art a superstition, or a way of life? Postscript : is art a superstition or a way of life? : a review  4. What is the use of art, anyway?  5. Beauty and truth  6. The nature of mediaeval art  7. The traditional conception of ideal portraiture  8. The nature of "folklore" and "popular art"  9. Beauty of mathematics : a review.

From the Jacket:

The nine essays in this book are among author's most stimulating. They discuss such matters as the true function of aesthetics in art, the importance of symbolism, and the importance of intellectual & philosophical background to the artist, they analyze the role of traditional culture in enriching art, they demonstrate the abstract art and primitive art, despite superficial resemblances, are completely divergent and they deal with the common philosophy which pervades all great art, the nature of medieval art, folklore and modern art, the beauty inherent in mathematics, and the union of traditional symbolism and individual portraiture in premodern cultures.

The author is a great orientalist and has covered the philosophic and religious experience of the entire premodern world, east and west, and for him primitive, medieval European, and classical Indian experiences of truth and art were only different dialects in a common.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
Tim Smith, USA
Love this site. I have many rings from here and enjoy all of them
