Rock Art in Kerala
Rock Art in Kerala
Description
About the Book:

This is the fourth book on Rock Art published by the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts under its Adi Drsya Programme.

The present study is based on a thorough survey of painted shelters of Kerala, the southern most region of India. Rock Art samples from Kerala are unique. The book brings to light a distinct style in Rock Art tradition, especially in terms of engraved geometric motifs.

Yashodhar Mathpal's present work does not suggest theoretical propositions and obviously it is not the objective of this monograph to create a new hypothesis. Being an artist himself, his identification and diligent and systematic recording of the rock art sites in this volume is a welcome contribution towards the understand the comprehension of the primal vision as seen in the distinctive and yet universal representation of art in Kerala. The tabulation of motifs and other details are methodically recorded. Rock art material, along with ethnographical evidence, suggests a chose dynamic relationship between man and nature; the line and style of drawings of plants, animals and abstract motifs is an indication of this relationship.

The book will be of great help to researchers who wish to pursue further work in the area.

He has discovered rock art sites and made comprehensive studies of the paintings at Bhimbetka and of Shamla Hills in Madhya Pradesh. He also participated in excavation of rock art sites in Bhimbetka. Himself an artist, he reproduced a large number of rock art samples from Bhimbetka at the initial stage. Later on, having spend several years studying and surveying rock art of Central Himalayas specially in and around Bhimtal he documented amazing varieties of rock art samples. He also traveled in Kerala and with his usual knack copied rock art paintings and brushings.

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
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.
