Iconography Of Revanta
Iconography Of Revanta
Description

From the Jacket:

The present monograph on Revanta by B N Sharma deals with the concept and iconography of this deity in detail. All the relevant literary and archaeological material bearing on Revanta has been taken into account. The author has for the first time given an exhaustive critical account of Revanta touching on all possible aspects.

The illustrations have carefully been selected from ancient art relies representing Revanta in the north and south India. For a student of Hindu iconography this publication is indispensable. The conclusions arrived at by the author are based on adequate documentation. The relevant Sanskrit texts have also been collected. Dr. Sharma deserves our congratulations for this handy and useful publication.

The present monograph by B N Sharma on Revanta mythologically known as the son of God Surya is a welcome contribution in the field of Indian art. Among the minor Hindu deities Revanta occupies a somewhat prominent place of which no serious study was made so far. It is for the first time that a brilliant monograph detailing all the aspects of this God has been brought out and for this Dr. Sharma deserves our sincere compliments.

About the Authors:

Dr. B N Sharma Keeper National Museum New Delhi is the author of Social & Cultural History of Northern India and Festivals of India. He has also contributed extensively in Indian and Foreign scholarly journals on various aspects of Indology, iconography and art.

In 1971 he had organized the exhibition of Indian art through the Ages in the Man and His World exposition in Montreal.

In 1973 at the invitation of the US Department of State and American Association of Museums he was deputed by the Government to represent India at the International conferences of Museologists held at New York and other places and also to attend the meeting of the American Association of Museums at Milwaukee.

In 1975 he was offered a Fellowship by the JDR 3rd Fund New York to study Indian Art collections in the museums of USA, Canada, Great Britain and other countries of Europe and Asia.
