In a World of Gods and Goddesses (hardbound)
The Mystic Art of Indra Sharma
by James H. Bae
Reflections of India’s ancient Vedic cosmology, the prayerful paintings of In a World of Gods and Goddesses invite the viewer to see a visually astounding who’s who of the Hindu pantheon. Ganesh, Shiva, Laxmi and Lord Krishna are just some of the forms gracing the oversized pages.
Indra Sharma, one of India’s most prolific and sensitive painters, was born in 1923 in the town of Nathdwara, in Rajasthan, India. He learned painting from his family and did his first creation at age ten.
