About the Cover Photograph:
The Tree Goddess in the triple bend and axial torsion, in the well-defined delights of her body, and suggestiveness of her face, in which the single traits convey much, though sculpturally they count no more than her cumbrous ornaments and detailed coiffure, comes more than a thousand years after her embodiment in Sanchi. (Yakshi, from Gyaraspur, now Gwalior Fort, Archaeological Museum, Madhya Bharata, 10th Century, Height: 19.5 inches).
Recently, the facial expression of this sculpture had received higher appreciation than the famous painting of Monalisa, by the panel of International Archaeologists.
