Summary
Contributed articles on Indic sculpture, painting, illustrated manuscripts, folk drama, etc., depicting the story of Ramayana.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This volume offers a glimpse of the range of artistic productions devoted to the glory of Rama. His is a human story to which all can relate, a saga captivating millions because of the protagonist's portrayal as both hero-king and avatar. While introductory essays set the scene by discussing this universality and examining the original Valmiki Ramayana, the book then proceeds with a series of articles devoted to the Rama legend in India's sculpture and painting from hitherto unexplored angles. The volume ventures beyond Indian borders to cover the Battle of Lanka as carved in the great temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Novel interpretations that hold interest for varied readers provide a rare insight into one of the most deeply appreciated stories of the world.
