Pancha Mahadevas in the Indian Art

 
S B Singh (Author)
Synopsis
The present book is a valuable contribution to the studies of Pancha Mahadevas (Siva, Vishnu, Surya, Ganesa and Devi) in the Indian art based on the comprehensive field work, unraveling the vast sculptural store-house lying almost unnoticed in the sprawling region of the country, bringing latest archaeological, literacy, epigraphic and numismatic insights to bear upon their genesis, evolution history and development in a chronological sequence.

The antiquity of Gods, their legendary origin, evolution and concept are fascinating in the channeling of he philosophic thought. The analysis, documentation, arrangement and narration of sculptural art are only matched to the author’s intense devotion to this study. The mostly informative, critical and comprehensive and immensely readable analysis centering, round God’s images, their iconic features, chronology, evolution, esoteric significance and all bears a rich testimony to author’s multifaceted experience in the field of art and archaeology.
