Book Description Marg Pub, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. This lavishly illustrated volume provides a comprehensive discussion of an extensive collection of metal sculptures from the Indian subcontinent. Although the objects reflect the personal taste of the collector who lives in New Orleans, USA, they not only cover the enrtire subcontinent but also span 15 centuries of the Common Era, a few being even older. Thematically they represent divinities of the Hindu pantheon as well as Buddhas and bodhisatvas, Jinas and Jain deities, thereby providing a rich array of the diverse figures of the three major religions of ancient India. This volume is the first comprehensive survey of the major schools of Indian religious bronzes for over half a century. Primarily an art-historical publication, in discussing these bronzes the author has juxtaposed matter of style, iconography and chronology with his own personal aesthetic. The catalogue should appeal to students of South Asian art history, collectors, and connoisseurs of bronzes from the region, as well as the general reader interested in the subject.
