About this Item

This detailed catalogue features carvings, sculpture, religious statuary, jewellery, paintings, book covers and ritual objects from Singapore's Asian Civilisation Museum's South Asian collection. It is organised around several major themes: religions of India - Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism; South India, where most of the Indians of Singapore trace their roots; ancient India; medieval North India; and colonial India. The catalogue is richly illustrated throughout with colour photographs, and artefacts are carefully described to give information specific to the object and its cultural significance. The curator's essay explains the rationale behind the collection and the ACM's acquisition policy. Supplementary material includes a timeline, a translation of select inscriptions, analyses of select metal artefacts, and a glossary. With bibliography and index. 288pp. Bookseller Inventory # 041381
