Bastar Folk Art: Shrines, Figurines and Memorials, Michel Postel and Zarine Cooper
1 Bastar Folk Art: Shrines, Figurines and Memorials

Michel Postel and Zarine Cooper

Franco Indian Research Pvt. Ltd, Mumbai, India, 1999, 81-900184-5-0 / 9788190018456, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The present work documents different aspects of the cultural heritage of the district of Bastar. While the varied lifestyles of the Maria and Muria Gonds, and other groups, have been the focus of considerable anthropological research, relatively little is known of the numerous temples that represent the establishment of the Nagvansi dynasty in the 10th century and subsequently that of the Kakatiya. The ruins of Bhongapal and Garh Gobrahin are estimated to be older and bear testimony to the transitory efflorescence of the Buddhist and Vaisnavite faiths. Their influence on the socio-religious structure of the indigenous population is reflected in the village shrines, highlighting an on-going process of mutual enrichment. In illustrating the most important places of worship, an attempt has been made to explore the intersection of traditions. The subtle interplay of cultural interaction through time renders it difficult to distinguish the 'folk' from the classical, indicating the need to review our concepts of Indian art.
