Khajuraho Temples of Love

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

As recently as two decades ago few people knew of Khajuraho's existence; today it is a popular destination for tourists, scholars and art historians from around the globe. Its temples are the pinnacle of architectural and sculptural excellence, representing one of the finest groupings of Indian art. Yet very little is known about their builders, the medieval Chandela rulers, and even less about the reasons why the temples were used to portray (among other things) some of the most graphic erotic sculptures the world has ever known. Collating fact and conjecture, historical records and current hypotheses, this book attempts to capture, through word and image, the spirit of Khajuraho. It is aimed at a reader who might not necessarily have a deep knowledge of Indian art, mythology or history, but who would like to gain an appreciation and understanding of Khajuraho's magnificent temple sculptures.

Book in excellent condition, with clean unmarked pages and tight binding. Dust jacket has slight wear, with minor buffing on front and back.
