Some articles deal with new archaeological discoveries of excavations undertaken at Ayodhya, Pakkakot, North-Eastern Vindhyas and Keeladi. The Art Criticism perspective of A.K. Coomaraswamy also finds expressions in the volume. New idea of interactive and connecting concept of museum exhibitions is also discussed. Symbolism of iconic forms of Dohada, Tripurantaka Shiva, Buddha and Water provide some new dimensions. The remains in Morocco Museums and Khmer Heritage of Cambodia take the content of the volume outside India. The social dimensions of Indian art in reference to Vaidik-Puranic (Brahmanical), Buddhist and Jaina remains from different places are another feature of the volume. The research papers in spatial terms cover India and abroad and range in date from about 8th century BCE to 20th century CE. All the articles are well illustrated and discussed giving the observations/conclusions.
