Avatar Art: Neo-Vedic Paintings Celebrating Life
Avatar Art offers a stunning panorama of the most popular figures in India's array of avatars, gods, sages, and demons - all in over 100 paintings (with supporting text) done for the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust to illustrate Srila Prabhupada's Srimad-Bhagavatam, Krishna Book, Sri Caitanya-caritamrita, and other publications.
Avatar Art is divided into three sections:
- Avatars, Devas, Sages, and Demons
- The life of Krishna, the Supreme Godhead.
- Sri Caitanya and His Associates.
Explore the fascinating Vedic world portrayed by contemporary devotee artists. Learn why Vishnu has four arms, why Shiva dances, and why Ganesh sports the head of an elephant. Read about the curse that created a
snake-bird and led to a king's immolation, and the dishonorable treatment of a queen that ignited the famous Mahabharata war. On these pages, Rama and
Ravana battle it out, and the man-lion Narasingha protects a prince.
