Deer in Rock Art of India and Europe

Giacomo Camuri (Editor)
Synopsis Emerging from the oldest testimonies of visual heritage and fragments of oral tradition, the deer is deeply rooted in the psyche of the people in almost every culture of the world. It is widely portrayed in the rock art sites of India and Europe. Deer in Rock Art of India and Europe provides an overview of deer in the rock art of India and Europe and its representation through the historic period. In the Indian section valuable evidence from several sites has been provided. A glimpse of a deep and sensitive understanding of the deer in man's life and nature in the Indian literary tradition has been presented. The European section reveals the geographical extent of the various species of deer, besides the myths, legends and fables constructed around its presence. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) is pursuing rock art research in a universal context. It forms an important component in its programme of the Adi Drsya (primaeval sight), which is dedicated to everything that is understood by the word palaeo-art. This volume is the second in the IGNCA series of rock art studies, the first being Rock Art in the Old World edited by Michel Lorblanchet. It is meant for wide ranging specialists and students interested in human history and art.
