Leaves of a pipal tree: aesthetic reflections on some Hindu myths and symbols
Dehejia, Harsha V
The author presents in this book selected myths and symbols from the Hindu tradition and offers a refreshingly different aesthetic and non-theistic analysis and shows how these mythic narratives and visual symbols are an alternative form of knowledge. The essays are richly illustrated with paintings and objects from his personal collection.
