Description

About the Book:

Purna Kalasa or the Full Vase or Purna Ghata is deeply rooted in Indian culture and religious ceremony. It is a visible symbol of the most mysterious life-forces revealed as Creation, and is a popular decorative motif of beauty and auspiciousness. The author studies the Purna Kalasa in Vedic literature and the importance of its worship. He reflects on the motif as a symbol in the art of Sanchi, Mathura, Bharhut, Gandhara, Amaravati, Nagarjunikonda, Hampi, etc., be it Jaina, Buddhist or Brahmanical, and in the residential houses or shrines or stupas. Although he compares the motif in sculpture, he also studies it as a symbol in painting.

About the Author:

Dr. P.K. Agrawala is a well-known scholar of Indology working as a University Professor in the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. His special field of investigation is Ancient Indian Art, Iconography and Religious thought.

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.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

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.

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.
