Chitralakshana Story of Indian Paintings
Chitralakshana Story of Indian Paintings
Description

From The Book

Chitralakshana

Is the title I have given to the story of Indian painting which I have written for you. It is a story and not a history. For, when our forefathers painted pictures they never put down dates. So I have only talked of eras-'prehistoric', 'Gupta', 'Medieval', etc. all dates of paintings and sculptures are guess-work. And your guess is as good as mine. Words of praise too are not very necessary for paintings. The men who filled large spaces, with colours, lines and figures, did so from love of painting heroes and heroines, animals, birds and flowers. I offer this album, then, for the pleasure of all your big-eyed young, who have the sense of wonder in your eyes

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
