Wood Carvings of Gujarat
Wood Carvings of Gujarat
Description

From the Jacket:

The author has minutely described the wood-carvings displayed on the doors, balconies, struts and columns found in thousands of traditional houses in Gujarat. Most of these houses are over hundred years old. A large part of the timber used for these carving was imported over long distances by sea. Reflecting the lifestyle of inhabitants, these specimens of wooden architecture have been receiving increasing attention and appreciation of the connoisseurs. These works of art are unique in scale and quality for their outstanding woodwork.

V.S. Pramar is an architect by profession, having studied at the Technical University, Munich. He joined the M.S. University of Baroda as a teacher specializing in the History of Architecture, both Indian and European, and retired as Head of the Department in 1986. he did his Ph.D. on the Wooden Architecture of Gujarat, and a copy of the thesis has been acquired by the Museum of Mankind, British Museum, London.

The author has also published Design Fundamental in Architecture, as also numerous scholarly articles in, for example, Artibus Asiae (New York); Journal of the Islamic Environmental Design Research Centre (Italy); British Museum Occasional Papers (London); contributions to Indian Sociology (Delhi); MARG (Bombay); Journal of the Oriental Institute (Baroda); Architecture + Design (Delhi); etc. He was for some years a regular contributor to the Times of India, Bombay, and also one of their book reviewers on Indology.
