Height and Size in Indian Iconography

Indian Religions - Renaissance and Renewal - Anna S. King

Christopher Aslet

Description

This chapter considers some of the principal ways in which size is manipulated in Indian Art and some of the main reasons for which it is done. Indian Art is largely unconcerned with providing an accurate visual account of the world of space and time and matter. Rather it seeks to evoke a sense of the transcendent Reality which lies behind it.
