Book Description

About the Book

 

The Indian epic Ramayana is one of the world's greatest and most enduring stories. Prince Rama was exiled with his beloved wife Sita for fourteen years through the plotting of his stepmother. Sita was carried off by the demon Ravana, King of Lanka, and Rama gathered an army of monkeys and bears to search for her. The allies attacked Lanka, killed Ravana and rescued Sita. In order to prove her chastity, Sita entered fire, but was vindicated by the gods and restored to her husband.

 

The illustrated Ramayana commissioned by Rana Jagat Singh of Mewar in Rajasthan between 1649 and 1653 and now mostly in the British Library is among the greatest of seventeenth-century Indian manuscripts. The huge scale of the project, with over 400 paintings, allowed the artists to focus on telling the epic story on the grandest scale. Nearly 130 of the paintings are here presented in book form for the first time, allowing the reader

to follow the story through the paintings, while the detailed introduction puts this epic manuscript into its historical and cultural context.
