This course focuses on the essential role of the visual in India's ancient and modern cultural and religious traditions. The creation and nature of visual imagery are explored in sculpture, temples, palaces, persons, symbols, times and places. From bustling cities to remote villages and pilgrimage sites, from beggar to Brahmin to Hindu gods and goddesses, the course explores the "divine image" in India. Fulfills Non-Western Art History requirement. Formerly ACD 380X / SNS 380.
