Musical Instruments in Sculpture in Karnataka
Musical Instruments in Sculpture in Karnataka
Description

From the Jacket

In this pioneering study the author makes a significant contribution to the history of musical instruments in India with special reference to the sculpture of Karnataka. Focusing on the period covering the Kadamba, Chalukya, Hoysala and Vijayanagara empires, and the geographical area constituted by present day Karnataka, the book affords a full description of musical instruments as regards their origins, status, purpose or use, context and professional relations. The source such as folk literature, literature pertaining to music, epigraphic records, actual surviving specimens, and so on are also discussed. Adequately illustrated and supported by an exhaustive bibliography, the book should be of value to students of Indian musicology, architecture and cultural history.

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.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

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.
