Trees in Indian Art Mythology and Folklore
Trees in Indian Art Mythology and Folklore
Description
About the Book:

The present volume tells the complete story of trees in Indian Art and Mythology. It takes into account a holistic survey of all the aspects of tree worship in India more especially the scientific importance of tree worship, the medicinal values of trees and their bounties to mankind in general. The book draws interesting parallels using the textual code of the primal vision of the World Tree. While adopting an interdisciplinary approach, a viable theory for the history of Art has been attempted. The fascinating richness of this work lies in the "mythology" of Art which provides a conceptual explanation of the nature of Art.

With this work, not only historians of Art but anthropologists of religion will also be benefited. They will be in a position to follow the fascinating through-trails in Art and Nature. Enriched with fine illustrations the book will prove a treasure-house both for the specialists and public in general.

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.
