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.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
