Pupul Jayakar journeyed to the far corners of India interviewing rural, tribal, and other craftspeople to produce this original and fascinating illustrated study of India's ancient ritual arts, many of which survive to this day. The Earth Mother is India's primordial, creative goddess and India is one of the few places where goddess worship through the centuries remains highly visible. Jayakar takes us to this world of myth, magic, and transformation - the vital world of the Earth Mother and her creative energy.
