About the Book

Art of Mathura is very important in the art history of India. The geographical loeation of the city of Mathura in the context of ancient India, on the highway leading from Eastern India to the west and from Southern India and Gujerat to Gandhara and further in the north-west, contributed to the eclectic nature of its culture, It shows gradual development of art forms from 4th cent. B.C. till its maturity in the Gupta period (4th-Sth Cent. A. D.). It Shows old folk-cults in the worship of Yakshas and Nagas with the worship of Brahmanical, Jaina and Buddhist divinities and the development of Buddha image as against a symbol representing human form. There is free use of Hellenistic motifs, e. g. honey-suckle, acanthus, Erotes, Tritons, Eagle of Zeus, etc.

The author discusses some of the finest examples of Mathura art and its special features and elements.

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.
