BHAKTISIDDHANTA    Book Number: 89506    Product format: Hardback

'Arjuna to single combat. At that moment dark rainclouds and flashes of lightning appeared in the sky, along with the rainbow of Indra. When Surya saw how Indra had appeared there out of affection for his son Arjuna, he began dispersing the clouds out of love for his own son. Karna was then bathed in bright sunlight, while Arjuna stood in the shadow of black clouds.' A monumental work of sculpture called the Glory of India tells the stories from India's greatest spiritual epic, the Mahabharata. The exquisite bas-reliefs present a stimulating pictorial journey into India's illustrious past and the magnitude of its timeless epic. This magnificent treasury presents excerpts of the story with a line art illustration of scenes like the Tournament, the Killing of King Sishupala, Krishna Visiting the Pandavas where they were sent to the forest to live in exile for 13 years, the search for divine Astras, Bhima and Hanuman, the monstrous and effulgent monkey, the son of Vayu. These superb mythological literary tales are presented in a very visual format right through to Midnight Magic and finishing with a tiny excerpt from the Bhagavad-gita. 80 pages, full page colour illustrations, 27.5 x 23cm. Rare 2000 first illustrated edition of sculptures, paintings, drawings and photos.
