Early Buddhist Art of Bodh Gaya
Early Buddhist Art of Bodh Gaya
Description
About the Book

Early Buddhist Art of Bodh-Gaya is an exercise in hermeneutic reconstruction of the text and context of the first century BC railing sculptures from the site, where the Buddha had attained enlightenment in the sixth century BC and where the diamond throne of the Buddha survives as a remnant from Asokan Days in the third century BC. It investigates and corrects the subjective intellectual bias in a century and a half of writing on Bodh-Gaya, redirects attention from coins, inscriptions, motifs, patterns, teleological, religious or iconological theories to the style of objects; and uses the bodh-Gaya railing sculptures, together with sculptures from other sites, to explain the entire evolution of early Buddhist Art in North India from the second century to the first century BC, in the process, it recapitulates and rectifies the nineteenth century archaeology of Cunningham, translates and critically interprets, for the first time, several seminal analyses in French by twentieth century scholars like Coomaraswamy, Combaz, Hackin, Stern and Benisti; and retrieves from oblivion, the outstanding contribution of early Bodh-Gaya railing sculptures to the formation of the vocabulary of Indian Art.

Fotis, Greece

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
