Description

In India, astrology is not merely a method of divination, but an integral part of its religious and cultural traditions. The book explores the interrelatedness of astrology, art and religion. In the beginning it deals with the foundations of Hindu astrology and its rich symbolism.

It then goes on to describe the various representations of astral symbols in the traditional arts of sculpture and painting. Finally, the book shows how artistic representations of astral deities such as planets and stars are used in ritual and worship.
