This comprehensive survey combines a sumptuous display and documentation of hundreds of pieces of jewelry with an illuminating discussion of how myth, religion, social structure, economics, and politics have influenced jewelry design in India. The book encompasses every area of the country, from sophisticated urban enclaves to isolated ethnic communities. Beginning with Paleothic body ornaments, the author goes on to identify the emergence of major traditional forms, such as amulets, rosaries, marriage ornaments, temple jewelry, theatrical jewelry, and adornment for animals. The illustrations are drawn from public and private collections around the world, and line drawings depict traditional design forms and techniques. 870 illustrations, 220 in color. Printed Pages: 430.
