INDIAN SCULPTURE
INDIAN SCULPTURE
Description
From the Jacket :

Through the centuries, sculpture in India has been a dominant expression of the people and their land. Today India provides a cultural continuity that has survived a long and diversified history, in which changes have occurred, old images and artistic expressions have been altered and new elements and influences have been absorbed, enriched and variegating the cultural strands without ever breaking them. Sculpture, especially as an art form, was granted extensive patronage by the Indus valley Civilization, the Mauryas, the Satavahanas, the Sungas, the Kushans, the Guptas, the Chalukyas, the Rashtrakutas, the Pallavas, the Cholas, and still continues to thrive in contemporary India.

Indian Sculpture is a richly illustrated book that reproduces some of the finest examples of Indian sculpture, with an extensive commentary on the importance of the art of carving, modeling and casting in the Indian civilization for over 4000 years.

About the Author :

Dr. Grace Morley was the founder director of the National Museum, New Delhi. She was almost 80 when she wrote Indian Sculpture. Yet such was her eye for detail that she personally vetted each picture to ensure that the colours matched the original object. It was this meticulous attention to detail that makes this book a collector's piece.

Under Dr. Grace Morley's care, the National Museum gained recognition as one of the most important institutions of its kind, not only in India but in Asia as well. Under her care, museums in India came to e recognized not only as abodes of cultural objects and research but also as disseminators of knowledge.

DN DUBE is a highly acclaimed photographer who has authored several books.

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.

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.
