Description
About the Book

The study of Nepalese art and monuments is still in its beginning. Recently a few painstaking works on Nepalese sculpture and iconography have appeared by such autho- rities like Dr. Stella Kram- risch, etc. The present mono- graph isin the same flux of research undertakings, and offers a minute and extensive study of one important aspect of Nepalese art, viz. the icons of Astral Divinities in Nepal, known from sculpture and literary texts. While tracing early traditions, the authors have usefully drawn compara- tive material from Indian sculpture and literature ; this justifyingly has to be done in a study like the present one that attempts at analysing the elements of Nepalese art and religion evolved through centuries with Hindu and Buddhistic traditions..

Over the years, I have purchased several statues, wooden, bronze and brass, from Exotic India. The artists have shown exquisite attention to details. These deities are truly awe-inspiring. I have been very pleased with the purchases.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
