Forms of the Goddess Lajja Gauri in Indian Art

By: Carol Radcliffe Bolon

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.: 1996

The artists creating images of Lajja Gauri drew on various ancient symbols of fortune, fertility, and life-force to communicate her power through their rich heritage of meanings. Because there are no texts to explain the figure, the study proceeds from the basis of the objects to derive their meaning. Carol Bolon charts the changes in the goddess`s form over a period of more than four centuries, including its possible adoption from tribal worship into Hindu temples, and brings a new appreciation of Lajja Gauri`s rich symbolic meaning and cultural context.Printed Pages: 176.
