KUSHANA SCULPTURES FROM SANGHOL
KUSHANA SCULPTURES FROM SANGHOL
Description
Preface to the Second Edition:

The Kushana Sculptures from Sanghol, Edited by S. P. Gupta, has run out of stock. The monograph became popular amongst the scholars and art historians as well as general public because of its printing quality and also the informative and critical papers presented by seven experts on the subject. All the copies were sold out long time back. Hence, as per the decision taken by the Publication Committee of the National Museum, the second edition of the book is being published. In this context it may be mentioned that the Sanghol sculptures are presently preserved and displayed in the site museum itself. Its documentation and publication were initiated by the National Museum in 1985 for the benefit of scholars, students and art-hiatorians. However, it was yet to be completed. We hope that the Punjab Govt. will come forward and allow the National Museum to photograph the rest of the sculptures and other antiquities from Sanghol so that we are able to publish the IInd Volume also. Till then we will have to content with this second enlarged edition Vol. I. This has been possible because Dr. S. P. Gupta has added a new write-up on the subject bringing to light several new works of art from Sanghol. We are extremely thankful to him for this. We hope that the academic community would welcome this second edition.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
