GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
GANESA (Ganesha): Images from India and Indonesia
Description
About the Book:

Ganesa is one of the most important deities of Hinduism and there is no dearth of books on this god. Most of these books deal with the origin, antiquity, history and mythology of the elephant-headed god and some with his images in Indian and elsewhere. From Japan to Central Asia where Ganesa images exist. Indonesia is the country next only to India where have been found the largest number of the ancient icons of the god and where the worship of this deity is still a living tradition. The present work, representing the Ph.D. thesis of the author, is the first serious attempt to present a comparative study of the images of the god in India and Indonesia during the early historic and medieval periods. It carries further the work of late Shri C. Sivaramamurti to study the geographical and chronological factors in the iconography of Ganesa in the two countries and traces the origin and development of certain iconographic traits of Ganesa images from the country of their inspiration and the different regions thereof. It covers Ganesa images in different media - stone terracotta and metal and also brings to light many interesting images of the deity from Indonesia for the first time.

About the Author:

I. Wayan Redig was born in Bali (Indonesia) and received his education upto the post-graduation level in that island. The subjects of his study included epigraphy, art and archaeology. After finishing his studies he joined The Udayana University, Denpasar, Bali as a Lecturer. In 1989, he got Government of India scholarship to pursue higher studies in India and chose the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology, Panjab University, Chandigarh to work on 'Ganesa Images from India and Indonesia - A Comparative Study' for his Ph.D. which was awarded to him in 1993. During the course of his research work, he visited most of the important museums in India and Indonesia.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
