Description
About the Book

The specificity of the images of Mathura lies in the invention of forms which can translate the diverse personalities of the divinities of the Hindu pantheon. The creations of phantasmic anatomy in the domain of imaginaire, instead of being monstrous, accord a perfect harmony between form and signification. The human figure, the basic form, is transformed into divine form. It is one of the great inventions of Indian art. The impossible associations in the real word create a very natural universe of gods. The present monograph ends with the history of the reactions of the European travellers to icons which were so different from their classical ideal of beauty. It leads to a reflection on the problematic of perception and assimilation of form.

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.
Mike, USA
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.
