This volume is a detailed exposition of the visual retellings from the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagavata Purana on specific South Indian Hoysala temples. The first part of the book deals with the Amrtesvara temple, particularly its narrative panels depicting the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagavata Purana. The text is a resume of episodes paired with photographs which illustrate and review the visual retellings and explore Indian techniques of visual narrative. Corollary material from other Hoysala temples with narrative reliefs, including new sites, is presented in the second part. There are very few published contextual studies of Indian narrative sculptures, and so the book is a contribution to the documentation of Indian medieval art, examining visual narratives within the context of the Hindu temple. The book is illustrated with 150 photographs.
