Book Description

The art of HIndusim constitutes one of ghe worls's great traditions, as alive today as when the first image of Hindu gods were fashioned out of stone more than two thousand years ago. Looking at the entire period, and covering both shriness consecrated to Hindu cults and works of art portraying Hindu cults and works of art portraying HIndu divinities, semi-dicine personalities and mythological narratives, George Michell's new survey is both unique and incaluable.

After introducing HInduism, ots gods, the symbolic basis for its architecture, and the system of royal patronasge that led to the creation of so many temple and their attendant works of art, the book adopts a broad chronological sweep, which demonstrates artistic continuities down to the present day in the different regions of the Indian subcontinent.
