9788170174806: Bastar Bronzes: Tribal Religion And Art

This book is a comprehensive study of the religion, myths, rituals and art of the Bastar tribes. The author has been connected intimately with Bastar since four and half decades. He developed a fancy for the tribal people of Bastar developed a fancy for the tribal people of Bastar and became interested in their culture . He started and became interested in their culture. He started collecting their artifacts specially the bronzes collecting their artifacts specially the bronzes which art made for them by Ghasia craftsmen who are living with them since time immemorial. Due to the long association with the tribal these craftsmen are well acquainted with their myths, religion and rituals. As a matter of fact this ancient community of bronze makers has given the community of bronze makers has given the idolatry forms to their animistic religious beliefs. Bastar has always been an enigma for the outside world. Covered under thick forests, situated on the Southern plateau, remote sna closed for many centuries, it was considered a magic world. The Bastar tribes although have been greatly influenced by their Hindu neighbors, yet they have their own religion, own pantheon and way of worship. This book is a study of their religious beliefs, gods and goddesses, totems, demigods, demons and spirits of natural forces. So far no serious attempt has been made to study deeply the religion and art of the Indian tribes. The subject has been dealt with their larger anthropological studies and not exclusively dealing with their religion and art. I hope this book wills fulfill that void. The author has traveled Bastar's every nook and corner. In the last fortyfive years he has traveled roughly one-lakh kilometers in his several visits and stays in Bastar and has a close association with the peoplke and bronze makes. The bronzes published in this book are the rarest and very special. The author has collected them in the last fortyfive years. He has the most authentic finest and the largest collection of the Bastar, bronzes of this own which is known through the world.
