Hindu Gods and Goddesses: 300 Illustrations from "The Hindu Pantheon"

Edward Moor


Reflecting the spirit of East Indian myths, legends, and fables, those illustrations have been compiled by way of one of many 19th century's superior Orientalists. Edward Moor released The Hindu Pantheon in 1810, and this new quantity attracts upon his exposition of India's spiritual iconography to supply a magnificent array of pictures of Hindu deities.

Dramatic engravings and line drawings contain scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabharata in addition to temple pictures of Krishna, Vishnu, Siva, and different significant gods and goddesses. Many are derived from bronze collectible figurines; others are reproduced from manuscript illustrations. All look with captions for ease of identity.
