Bangladesh Kantha Art in the Indo-Gangetic Matrix

Perveen Ahmad (Author)
Synopsis The Indus Valley and Indo-Gangetic Civilisation continue to draw the attention of scholars and researchers. Archaeologists continue their endeavors to push back the boundaries of history by unearthing evidence that reveals a rich past. The artifacts, and decorative objects of human settlements emerging from such excavations provide a useful means to unravel new information for scholars to co-relate. In this book Perveen Ahmed presents a view of Bangladesh Kantha Embroidery Art motifs in the backdrop of visual and plastic arts emanating from the Indus Valley and Indo Gangetic Civilisation. She states that Kantha art reflects clear linkages with the magnificent legacy of cultist, Vedic, Tantric, Sufi and Non-Figurative Muslim Art forms. She makes a powerful case by tracing Kantha motifs to the greater Indian Art matrix in which images appear as a reflection of and link to the recognizable classical art symbolism of Ancient India. The Ganges Folk culture of Bangladesh reflects the precursor civilizations not only of Harappa, Mohenjodaro and Wari Bateshwar, Narshindi, but the author hints towards earlier sources of the Mellulhas of 8000 B.C. The book will interest both art historians and art craft scholars.
