Description
About the Book

Art of Mathura is very important in the art history of India. The geographical loeation of the city of Mathura in the context of ancient India, on the highway leading from Eastern India to the west and from Southern India and Gujerat to Gandhara and further in the north-west, contributed to the eclectic nature of its culture, It shows gradual development of art forms from 4th cent. B.C. till its maturity in the Gupta period (4th-Sth Cent. A. D.). It Shows old folk-cults in the worship of Yakshas and Nagas with the worship of Brahmanical, Jaina and Buddhist divinities and the development of Buddha image as against a symbol representing human form. There is free use of Hellenistic motifs, e. g. honey-suckle, acanthus, Erotes, Tritons, Eagle of Zeus, etc.

The author discusses some of the finest examples of Mathura art and its special features and elements.

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...
