In a World of Gods and Goddesses: The Mystic Art of Indra Sharma Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a World of Gods and Goddesses marks the first time a large collection of Indra Sharma's work has appeared outside of the Indian subcontinent. By magically combining contemporary and traditional artistic styles, Sharma creates icons of Hindu gods and goddesses that are altars of worship for millions. Steeped in India's ancient Vedic cosmology, these prayerful, captivating paintings contain a complete who's who of the Hindu pantheon. Ganesh, Shiva, Laxmi and Krishna come alive as divine forms in this unique and richly colored work.

Synopsis:

One of India's most noted painters, Indra Sharma derives inspiration from the Puranas and Upanishads, painting divine images of Hindu gods and goddesses against dreamy ethereal backgrounds. These captivating creations tell ancient stories and transport the viewer to the miraculously divine world of the Hindu universe. Prints of Sharma's work adorn millions of Hindu households throughout the world.

This magnificent coffee-table edition preserves a selection of his masterpieces for posterity. In it, readers encounter the Mahabharata and Ramayana and pay respects to revered deities (Ganesh, Shiva, Rama, Krishna, Saraswati, Lakshmi, and others). To open this book is to open the gates of the great temple of Hinduism and experience a pilgrimage within.
