    Ideal as a spur to creative inspiration, this beautiful book offers a striking and unusual view of the wide array of Indian art. The book highlights in close-up and vibrant colour the most breathtaking aspects of workmanship, materials and design found in stunning sculptures in metal, ivory and wood as well as paintings and textiles, drawn from the magnificent collections of the British Museum. Each of the intriguing and beautiful artworks is placed in its cultural context, and then explored further with amazing close-up views, allowing the reader insight even closer than a behind-the-scenes museum tour. By showing the complete artwork alongside a detail, the author provides a fresh view of each object which often allows for intriguing comparisons between seemingly unrelated objects and media. The selection of details evokes the hand and eye of the most accomplished Indian craft specialists, past and present.
