About this Item: Philipp von Zabern, Mainz, 2000. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. With a contribution by Georg Buddruss. Antiquities of Northern Pakistan, Reports and Studies, volume IV. Philipp von Zabern, Mainz, 2000. In-8, xii & 152 pages, 14 plates of loose plans, 32 plates of figures and photographs. Original cloth, as new. "This is the first monography on the only fortified village in Northern Pakistan that is still inhabited, and thus the only study of the type. Sazin lies alone in its own valley at about 1500 m in the extreme western Himalayas. Its inhabitants are Shin, part of a Dardic population in this region west of Gilgit which perhaps numbers 150,000 in all. Until a dirt road was built for forestry work in the 1970s, it could be reached only on foot. Dr. Andrews was the first Westerner to spend more than two days there. He made an architectural survey and gathered information for an initial ethnography of the village, covering its social organisation, agricultural economy, animal husbandry, feuds and history, besides its material structure. The information from Andrews' fieldwork is supplemented here by an introduction on the larger setting by K. Jettmar, and detailed historical commentary. Prof. Budruss has analysed the vocabulary of terms collected by Andrews, comparing it with terms in other Shina dialects.". Seller Inventory # M5173

About this Item: Sarabhai Founation, 2015. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Contents: Foreword. 1. Introduction. 2. A brief history of Tentage on the Indian subcontinent. 3. Measures under the Moghuls: Official measurements, gaz. 4. Some tent types and components. 5. Catalogue of specimens in the museum. Appendices. English Glossary. Perso-Indian glossary (tent terminology). Bibliography. Picture credits. For the rulers of India, whether Hindu or Muslim, tents had an importance far beyond the practical: they were direct expressions of status, in terms of height, size, colour and richness of decoration. In a way that is hard for us to imagine today, they were a genre of applied art in themselves, with a specific symbolism. Although HUGE quantities of tentage must have been created, the climate and insect life of India have destroyed much of this perishable material: very few complete tents have survived from even the eighteenth century, and many survive only as isolated panels or groups of panels. From at latest the Sixteenth century C.E., Ahmedabad was a major centre for tent production. Since the 1950s, Gautam and Gira Sarabhai have carefully assembled a representative collection of the tent panels in the Calico Museum of Textiles at Ahmadabad, with a few important tent roofs. For the first time, these are considered in this book as an art form in its own right. Seller Inventory # 116231
