Description

About the Book:

Quite a good deal of fresh study has been recently attempted by many a scholar on some well-known deities, their religious systems and iconographies as well as their metaphysical symbolism. However, only a few writers have endeavored to discover new or obscure aspects of certain lesser-known gods of goddesses. One such outstanding example is that of Vinayaki, the female form of the god Ganesa-Vinayaka. The present work introduces the problem of studying this curious goddess while discussing her names and identity as known from the texts, her antiquity as well as her iconic descriptions and representations in Indian art throught the ages. The learned author has collected and analyzed in critical details a great amount of material that had remained so far not properly studied with respect to this unique aspect of Ganesa, conceived as transformed into a female, with elephantine bust and affiliated attributes.

About The Author:

Dr. P.K. Agrawala is a well-known scholar of Indology working as a University Professor in the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. His special field of investigation is Ancient Indian Art, Iconography and Religious thought

Great service. Keep on helping the people
Armando, Australia
I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
