About Ancient Indian Art and the West
Ancient Indian Art and the West studies India’s relationship with the Western world through art and technology. The renowned Dr. William H. Mc. Neil, author of “The Rise of the West” and “A World History” has written the Preface.
Dr. Gajjar’s work reveals a common language of symbols that transcend cultures, religions and centuries. The widespread prevalence of such symbolism cannot but fascinate historians, archeologists, artists, scholars and laymen. Over 300 drawings and plates comparing motifs from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Iran and Greece with Indian counterparts illustrate the affinities, that have connected India and regions to the west from earliest times.
