Description

With 45 color illustrations, this work brings to the reader the Goddess Parvati, the Female Principle, consort of the God Shiva, lover, mother, provider, embodiment of beauty.

Art in India is never removed from life, intimately tied as it is to religion, aesthetics and utility. A walk into a temple or a place of worship becomes an experience at many levels, tactile, olfactory, sensory and visual, spiritual and religious. Taking any of the elements individually is thus a part experience at best.

In this book the author brings to the reader the Goddess Parvati, the Female Principle, consort of the God Shiva, lover, mother, provider, embodiment of beauty. In showing her in each of her manifestations, he tries to create the ambience that would normally exist around her to show her in her true glory.

The images in stone come mostly from the classical period in North India. The dominant theme in the stone sculptures is the amorousness togetherness of Shiva and Parvati, and of their form as Uma-Maheshvara. Also included are iconic Chola bronzes, Thanjavur paintings and images from folk tradition.
