 DESCRIPTION
spacer
India is a civilization of many images, a culture of many visual feasts, a tradition where the visible and the palpable are as important as the oral and the occurrent, where our highest truths are embodied in our kathas and gathas, our songs and stories, where our temples are not only places of worship but equally a gallery of beautiful forms and figures, where myth is as important as doctrine, where ancient memories are full of cherished narratives, where mythic beings are real in many different ways and we enrich our lives by festivals which celebrate events from the lives of our mythic gods and goddesses, and where knowledge is gained as much from itinerant performers as it is from learned discourses and where, when the wind blows through the Pipal tree it is as if we hear the hymns of the Vedas. Harsha V. Dehejia presents in this book selected myths and symbols from the Hindu tradition and offers a refreshingly different aesthetic and non-theistic analysis and shows how these mythic narratives and visual symbols are an alternative from of knowledge. The essays are richly illustrated with paintings and objects from his personal collection.
