Indian Temple Sculpture
Illustrated with the Victoria and Albert Museum’s unrivaled collection of South Asian sculpture, this freshly redesigned volume makes John Guy’s classic study available once again. This is the first book to look at Indian temple sculpture within its full context, from religion and ritual to architecture and iconography. An excellent introduction to the three traditional religions of the Indian subcontinent—Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism—through the myths and manifestations of the principal deities, Indian Temple Sculpture will fascinate all those interested in Indian culture.
John Guy is Curator of the Arts of South & South East Asia at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
