GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
Description
About the Book:

Ganesa is one of the most important deities of Hinduism and there is no dearth of books on this god. Most of these books deal with the origin, antiquity, history and mythology of the elephant-headed god and some with his images in Indian and elsewhere. From Japan to Central Asia where Ganesa images exist. Indonesia is the country next only to India where have been found the largest number of the ancient icons of the god and where the worship of this deity is still a living tradition. The present work, representing the Ph.D. thesis of the author, is the first serious attempt to present a comparative study of the images of the god in India and Indonesia during the early historic and medieval periods. It carries further the work of late Shri C. Sivaramamurti to study the geographical and chronological factors in the iconography of Ganesa in the two countries and traces the origin and development of certain iconographic traits of Ganesa images from the country of their inspiration and the different regions thereof. It covers Ganesa images in different media - stone terracotta and metal and also brings to light many interesting images of the deity from Indonesia for the first time.

About the Author:

I. Wayan Redig was born in Bali (Indonesia) and received his education upto the post-graduation level in that island. The subjects of his study included epigraphy, art and archaeology. After finishing his studies he joined The Udayana University, Denpasar, Bali as a Lecturer.

During the course of his research work, he visited most of the important museums in India and Indonesia.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
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.
