As the cowherd youth recently arrived in Vrindavan, the effect Krishna had on the hearts of the cows and the milkmaids alike is known and sung about to this day. And it was not just His youth and handsomeness and the charm of His demeanor that brought Vrindavan thus to life. His way with the flute is the stuff of legends. In fact, myth has it that His music drew the simple-hearted to Himself l

This elaborate brass sculpture is a variation of the Goddess Kali iconography, and hers is a distinct iconography. Her stance is far from the unassuming body language of Indian devices; she is clad in very little by way of clothing and shringar; and there is ferocity about her composure, which matches the weapons she wields in her numerous hands. This one is alone Goddess Kali's composition,

Lord Hanuman is revered as a fine warrior and a great bhakta (devotee). As part of the vanara-sena that fought Lanka on Rama’s side, His valour and His love of Rama (and everything dear to Rama) are much talked about to this day. The fact that Hanuman is a superior yogi, possessed of the ashtasiddhis and the navanidhis, is oft overlooked. The murti that you see on this page is a solid-cast work

The idea that all things are transient is central to Buddhist teaching. Loss and impermanence are things to be accepted rather than causes of grief. The Buddha’s Parinirvana was a moment of great triumph as well as sorrow, for it marked the Buddha’s release from the cycle of rebirth. This wood statue of Buddha depicts the Parinirvana in a highly abbreviated, almost emblematic fashion. The enli

Sri Hanuman is one of the most widely revered gods of the Hindu pantheon. This imposing, bejeweled statue of the Lord captures His divine appeal to perfection: the resplendence of all three looks pours forth from the skin, while His muscles give away His superhuman strength. The clenched fist, the parting of His legs, and the angle of His mace - without which His iconography is incomplete - are in

It is at Bodh Gaya that the erstwhile Shakyamuni attained Buddhahood. For years together He remained seated under the Bodhi tree, steeped in seedless contemplation or samadhi of the highest order. There he had arrived after decades of asceticism and mendicancy and austerities, a life diametrically opposite to the one His father the King Suddhodana had given Him. There is no place like Bodh Gaya, a

Nataraja is the most popular representation of the Hindu God Shiva. In Sanskrit, Nata means dance and raja means Lord. Shiva, therefore, is the 'King of Dancers'.

In India consequently, dance has flourished with the terrific aus
