La creation d'une iconographie sivaite narrative:incarnations du dieu dans les temples pallava construits (French)

Gillet, Valerie

₹ 1500.00

At the end of 7th century, the Pallava dynasty began to construct the first temples built entirely of stone in the Tamil-speaking South. For the most part these were dedicated to Siva and their walls are thus adorned with representations of him in various embodiments, some benign, some fierce and sanguinary, others victorious and regal. A lengthy introduction presents the historical and religious contexts in which this imagery was conceived and flourished. Each chapter of the book is then devoted to one of the principal forms of Siva, and the concluding chapter attempts to outline the iconographical program of a Saiva sanctuary in the Pallava period.
