Indian Temple Sculpture by John Guy

Book Description

This innovative book, illustrated with the V&A's unrivalled collection of South-Asian sculpture, looks at Indian temple sculpture in context, as an instrument of worship which embodies powerful religious experience. John Guy considers its cosmological meaning, its origins, the temple setting and the role of sculpture within it and reveals the vivid rituals and traditions still in practice today. It is also a fascinating introduction to the principal iconographic forms in the three traditional religions of the Indian subcontinent, Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism, with the principal deities presented through their myths and manifestations.

Elizabeth by John Guy Elizabeth, Hardback (May 2016)

In 1583 Elizabeth is fifty years old, past childbearing, but her greatest challenges are still to come: the Spanish Armada; the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots; relentless plotting among her courtiers. This title presents a portrait of her life and times that reveals a woman who is fallible, increasingly insecure, and struggling to lead Britain.

Henry VIII by John Guy Henry VIII, Hardback (December 2014)
