Kashmir occupies a central position in Asia with its borders touching Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and Tibet. This gave rise to the rich cultural mix in the valley, including religion, philosophy, literature, history, music, fine arts and aesthetics. There has been continuous sculptural activity in the region spanning over a period of 1000 years. Despite the rich treasure trove of Kashmir's sculptural images and their most distinctive regional style, a very little research work is done in this area. The present book is an attempt in that direction. These two volumes are an iconographic study of Brahmanical sculptures of Kshmir.

Author Bio: The author, a front rank Kashmir scholar of ancient art, is retired as professor of museology from National museum institute of conservation, art history and museology, New Delhi. He has a vast experience of over 4 decades in teaching, research and management of museums, museology and art history.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 16 June, 2011.
