Trees in Indian Art, Mythology and Floklore

Bansi Lal Malla (Author)
Synopsis The Present volume tells the complete story of trees in Indian Art and Mythology. It takes into account a holistic survey of all the aspects of tree worship in India more especially the scientific importance of tree worship, the medicinal values of trees and their bounties to mankind in general. The book draws interesting parallels using the textual code of the primal vision of the World tree. While adopting an interdisciplinary approach, a viable theory for the history of Art has been attempted. The fascinating richness of this work lies in the “mythology” of Art which provides a conceptual explanation of the nature of Art. With the work, not only historians of Art but anthropologists of religion will also be benefited. They will be in a position to follow the fascinating thought-trails in Art and Nature. Enriched with fine illustrations the book will prove a treasure-house both for the specialists and public in general.
