Epic India: Scenes from the Ramayana
Exhibition: 31st Mar 2010 to 3rd Oct 2010
The story of Rama-the Ramayana-one of the great epics of South Asia literature, has captured the imagination of Indian artists for centuries. Scenes from the Ramayana first appear at Deogarh, in north India, in the mid-fifth century. These temple sculptures are the earliest depictions of the avatars, or divine appearances, of Vishnu, among whom the most popular proved to be Rama.
