Bagh paintings: Identification and Interpretation
Bagh paintings: Identification and Interpretation
Description

About the Book:

Buddhist art in India which flourished from the time of King Ashoka (3rd century B.C.) to that of the Pala dynasty (A.D. 13th century) is devoted to monumental and sculptural art. Fresco painting is a salient feature of this period, particularly during the reign of the Guptas.

While the frescoes at Ajanta are a favourite subject of art critics and historians, those at Bagh in Central India seem to have been overlooked. Very few scholars worked on the Bagh frescoes which are now almost destroyed.

Dr. Meena Talim has attempted to collect all slender strings of information about the paintings and bring forth a clear and complete picture of the Bagh frescoes. Her approach is guided by the belief that Buddhist art cannot be truly evaluated without the help of Buddhist texts.

About the Author:

Dr. Meena Talim is a retired Professor and Head of the Departments of Ancient Indian Culture, and Pali at St. Xavier's College, Mumbai. At present she is working as an Honorary Professor at K. J. Somaiya Centre for Buddhist Studies, vidyavihar, Mumbai. She is a research guide for postgraduate studies of the University of Mumbai in both the subjects.

Her two books-Buddhavamsa and Woman in Early Buddhist Literature have been published by the University of Mumbai. She has presented several research papers and contributed to various national and international seminars.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
