Details: Indian civilization has layers of images where the highest train of thoughts from erudite verses mingle with simple home truths lying embedded in a long heritage of kathas (stories), gathas (songs), akritis (visual forms and motifs) and rachanas (compositions. Akriti to Sanskriti: The Journey of Indian Forms explores some akritis that adorn majestic monuments as well as ordinary spaces in India. Created by ordinary people and traditional artisans, these beautiful forms transcend individual and ritualistic boundaries to express a shared experience of visual knowledge, culture as well as brahma jnana or transcendental knowledge down generations. This book, a unique analysis and repository of Indian visual forms, is a collector’s tome.
