Illustrated with the V&A’s unrivaled collection of South Asian sculpture, this is the first book to look at Indian temple sculpture within its full context, from religion and ritual to architecture and iconography. John Guy examines the sculpture as an instrument of worship that embodies powerful religious experiences, and considers its cosmological meaning, its origins, the temple setting, and the role of sculpture within it, also revealing the vivid rituals and traditions still in practice today. An excellent introduction to the three traditional religions of the Indian subcontinent—Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism—through the myths and manifestations of the principal deities, Indian Temple Sculpture will fascinate all those interested in Indian culture.

About the Author:

He has also served as an advisor to UNESCO on historical sites in Southeast Asia.

Review:

"Essential and beautiful...this lavishly illustrated book is a welcome and much needed addition to the subject of Indian religious Art."
