Description

This book carries a collection of thirty essays on various aspects of Hindu and Buddhist Art and Iconography contributed by Indian and foreign scholars. These represent deep insight and new interpretations based on sound scholarship and accounts.

While intended to commemorate the loving memory of Professor Kalyan Kumar Dasgupta, the book is a fitting tribute to the great savant.
