Discourse in Early Buddhist Art: Visual Narratives of India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121507367 / 9788121507363; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Story-telling is an ever popular activity that occurs across space and time. Which child has not sat enthralled by the magic of story-tellers, and which adult has not succumbed to the seduction of reenactments of great legends? India's ancient Buddhist capitalized on the lure of stories, portraying them visually in stone reliefs and painted murals, to introduce viewers to the Buddhist faith and to confirm them in their belief. Commencing in the first century BC, Buddhist monasteries across the Indian subcontinent were extensively decorated with visual narratives of varying sizes, from a mere twelve inch panel to an extensive fifty foot wall. This book is a pioneering exploration of the manner in which stories are told. It identifies seven modes of visual story-telling used by the artist in early India, considers the reason for one mode being chosen over another, and explores how the effect of a story on the viewer varied according to the manner chosen to portray it. The book is a contribution to the expanding sphere of art historical investigation and also to the field of Buddhist studies. Printed Pages: 342 with 201 b/w illustrations and 61 line drawings. 029653

Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2001; 1890206245 / 9781890206246; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
At the turn of the millennium, photography is ubiquitous and unquestioned. A century-and-a half ago however, notes curator and scholar Vidya Dehejia, "the simple ability to produce a photograph was in itself a marvel. . . .The early decades of the nineteenth century witnessed the pursuit of a dream, an obsession with cajoling nature into a miraculous reflection upon a surface where it could be captured and retained for all time." India was at the vanguard of the explosion of photography; both Indian and foreigner (mainly British) strove to document and reveal the Indian landscape, people, and architecture. The essays in this book reveal the history and importance of photography in India, from the appeal of the panorama to the documentation of people, places, and princes-and to the outstanding Indian photographer, Lala Deen Dayal, who was unique in being esteemed by both the world of the British and the world of princely India. This book appeals to specialists and nonspecialists alike all those who love early photography or British India are bound to enjoy India through the Lens. Vidya Dehejia, curator of the exhibition, editor of and contributor to the book, is deputy director and chief curator of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery of Art. Contributors: Charles Allen, an author and broadcaster best known for his social histories of the British colonial era; John Falconer, curator of photographs, Oriental and India Office Collections, British Library; Michael Gray, curator at the National Trust, Fox Talbot Museum, Lacock, England, and scientific director of Ikons Centre Imaging Project, University of Pordenone, Italy; David Harris, independent curator and photographic historian specializing in nineteenth-century and contemporary architectural and landscape photography; Jane Ricketts, independent scholar and collector who has concentrated on the work of British photographers in India in the nineteenth century; and Gary Sampson, associate professor of art history at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

10 Vidya Dehejia
Slaves of the Lord: The Path of the Tamil Saints
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121500443 / 9788121500449; Second Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 
In the Tamil country of south India, during the last millennium, a powerful cult of saints has been in existence. These saints referred to themselves as adiyar or tondar, both words meaning "slaves"-of the Lord. Although the south Indian saints are lesser known than those of northern India, or of Europe, they are in a manner more significant. For the sacred canon of south India, both the Saivites and Vaishnavas, consists of the poems composed by these saints. Their hymns are chanted daily in the southern temples, and often sung in homes and at festivals. In the field of art too, the saints of south India occupy a unique position. Images of the complete group of saints, sixty-three Nayanmars in the case of Siva and twelve Alvars in the case of Vishnu, are to be seen in every temple in the Tamil country. Placed beside the shrine of the god, the saints are anointed, clothed and worshipped, being an integral part of temple rituals. To view the art forms in their totality and to appreciate the saints and the status accorded to them in the Tamil country, the author introduces their biographical details, the milieu in which they functioned, and includes selected translation of their poems. A complete picture emerges when the strands of poetry and religious history are brought in to highlight a study of the art. This is not simply a book about images of the saints, but one that will appeal to students of religion and literature. This original and exciting book is of relevance for the history of ideas.

13 Vidya Dehejia, Peter Rockwell (Authors) & Prasad Pawar (Photo.),
The Unfinished: Stone Carvers at Work on the Indian Subcontinent
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351941149; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The number of unfinished stone monuments in India is staggering… more than half of the 1100 rock-cut monuments are at various stages of unfinish – from famous sites like Ellora, Ajanta, and Mamallapuram, to temple structures like Hoysala temples. Celebrated for the intricacy of their sculpted decoration, the unfinished monuments are usually overlooked, their language never interpreted. The Unfinished: Stone Carvers at work on the Indian Subcontinent explores reasons for such unfinish, sharing valuable insights into the process and raising fundamental issues about the nature of the stone being cut, the tools in use, the makeup of the teams of workers required to work on stone monuments, the sequence of the actual carving process, and the importance of the rhythm of construction. Meticulously researched, this richly illustrated book focuses on specific issues of consequence in the context of unfinished work, as they gain an added weight and significance through discovery of their repetitive occurrence at site after site. Printed Pages: 280 with numerous colour illustrations. 107501
