Chandrika Silver Ornaments of India
Chandrika Silver Ornaments of India
Description
From the Jacket: It is an astonishing fact of Indian cultural history that a country destitute of silver mines should have stock-piled the metal in massive quantity, virtually through trade alone. Known as chandra lokha, rupya or rajat, in Sanskrit, silver, considered to be a cool metal has been popular in India from 5000 B.C. until now as material from ornaments and coinage. This first full-length monograph on Indian silver, deals with such topics as natural and trade related sources of the metal, communities of silver smiths, techniques and craftsmanship, historical account of its use, and the rich and varied typology of silver ornaments in India. Illustrated with examples from the collection of Chandrika Foundation, Jaipur, the book probes the factors of cultural diffusion, semiotic significances, regional peculiarities in term of style, symbolism and aesthetic value as well as the individual and community-based attributes in relation to Indian silver ornaments. It is aimed to serve as a book on the subject.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
