About Book
Tejas: 1500 Years of Indian Art follows the development of sculpture in bronze, stone and terracotta from the 3rd century BCE to the 12th century BCE. It is illustrated with a selection of nearly 200 of the world's most beautiful sculptures from the collections of Indian Museums and Archaeological Survey of India. The book opens on motifs and symbols of water cosmology, the old gods and avatars. It moves into the making of shrines and temples, there underlying symbology, and the making community. The many meanings of Tejas further reflect in the images of Jainism, Buddhism, Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Shaktism and ultimately of Surya, the sun.
