About the Book
A BOOK THAT CELEBRATES THE INTRICATE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INDIA’S MYTHOLOGY AND HER JEWELLED ARTS.
Fifty rare and exquisite antiques from the Amrapali museum’s collection come together in this book, their stories expertly narrated by Devdutt Pattanaik. Each object is a small but significant part of our history, its motifs and materials offering a unique perspective on our cultural heritage. As we look at these pieces, marvelling at the workmanship and skill that led to their creation, Devdutt’s words enlighten us as to the worlds they hold within.
