ABOUT THIS BOOK

‘O scion of Bharata, you should understand that I am also the knower in all bodies and to

understand this body and its knower is called knowledge.’

—Bhagavad Gita
The body has always been central to Indian art, thought, literature and even religion. In Body

Sutra, renowned art historian Alka Pande celebrates the body by capturing both its beauty and

divinity in an artistic-cum-historical journey.
This book is inarguably the definitive and a truly authoritative work on the literary and artistic

representation of the body, and combines rare Indian literature with the most stunning visual

documentation of the body ever.
Over time, the artistic representation of the body developed its own iconography. Drawing from

the canonical Shilpa Shastras, where the idealized body becomes more corporeal, it goes on to

attain a classical perfection in the Gupta Age, when the sensuous and the sacred came together. Dr Pande traces the shifting patterns of the representation of the body through 5,000 years of history, from the ancient to the contemporary. Body Sutra also gives an extraordinary insight into India’s pluralistic and diverse culture.
This masterful treatise beautifully weaves together poetry, prose, well-researched text and over

two hundred stunning images. With almost each page like a work of art, the book is definitely

a collector’s item.
Body Sutra is a book that will be talked about for decades.
