Hair Styles in Ancient Indian Art
Description
About the Book:

India is a land of hair-styles. In no other country, has so much imagination, thought and artistic genius bent lent to devising hair styles as in India. This is apparent from the rich and kaleidoscopic variety of coiffures, delineated in the whole range of early Indian plastic art. The present book is a study of the different varieties of hair-styles, as reflected in the early Indian art. The author has examined the sculptures of Barhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Gandhara, Nagarjunakonda and Mathura and also the murals of Ajanta, which impeccably portray the varieties of hair-styles known to their periods. The coverage, from, the second century B.C. to the sixth seventh centuries A.D., records all trends and tendencies in fashion and styles.

Testimonials
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 !
