BHARHUT SCULPTURES
BHARHUT SCULPTURES
Description

From the Jacket:

The monograph introduces the remains of a legendry stupa of the Sunga period (2nd century B.C.), which once stood near the village Bharhut in Madhya Pradesh. Since 1876 these antiquarian gems are the prized possession of the Indian Museum, Calcutta. The author in his capacity as Director of that museum had the opportunity to study them afresh and reassess their cultural and artistic merits. The renowned scholar Dr. Mulk Raj Anand in his capacity as 'Visitor' to the Museum suggested to bring out a handy pictorial companion which could be useful to the visitors to the Museum as well as lovers of early Indian art.

The book gives a lucid introduction besides several interesting interpretations about the concept and significance of stupa tradition and particularly the socio-religious and artist role played by this grand edifice in the pre-and post-Christian centuries.

Important sculptures have been adequately described and projected through colour and black and white illustrations.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
