Book Description New Orleans Museum of Art/Marg Publications, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. 192 pages with 104 entries, each with full description and color illustration, many full-page. This lavishly illustrated volume provides a comprehensive discussion of an extensive collection of metal sculptures from the Indian subcontinent. Although the objects reflect the personal taste of the collector who lives in New Orleans, USA, they not only cover the entire subcontinent but also span 15 centuries of the Common Era, several being even older. Thematically they represent divinities of the Hindu pantheon as well as Buddhas and Bodhisatvas, Jinas and Jain deities, thereby providing a rich array of the diverse figures of the three major religions of ancient India. Primarily an art-historical production, the author, the renowned scholar Dr. P. Pal, in discussing these bronzes has juxtaposed matters of style, iconography, and chronology with his own personal aesthetic. A Directors Foreword is followed by Collectors Remarks, General Introduction, the Catalogue itself, List of Sanskrit Names and Terms, 2 page Bibliography and Index. An excellent, very well illustrated title on the subject. Hardcover with jacket, a new book, still in publishers shrink-wrap. 12.25 by 9.5 inches. Seller Inventory # 239
