Description

About the Book:

Purna Kalasa or the Full Vase or Purna Ghata is deeply rooted in Indian culture and religious ceremony. It is a visible symbol of the most mysterious life-forces revealed as Creation, and is a popular decorative motif of beauty and auspiciousness. The author studies the Purna Kalasa in Vedic literature and the importance of its worship. He reflects on the motif as a symbol in the art of Sanchi, Mathura, Bharhut, Gandhara, Amaravati, Nagarjunikonda, Hampi, etc., be it Jaina, Buddhist or Brahmanical, and in the residential houses or shrines or stupas. Although he compares the motif in sculpture, he also studies it as a symbol in painting.

About the Author:

Dr. P.K. Agrawala is a well-known scholar of Indology working as a University Professor in the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. His special field of investigation is Ancient Indian Art, Iconography and Religious thought.
