Akriti to Sanskriti: the journey of Indian forms
Dehejia, Harsha V
This book explores some Akritis that adorn both majestic and grand monuments, as well as common and ordinary speces, and which through their purely visual language are pointers to not only our culture, but equally to Brahma jnana or transcendental knowledge. These beautiful visual representations of both the ordinary people and artisans, are not individual expressions but that of the shared experiences of the community and the preserve of the family, passed down through endless generations.
