Abstract:

"Represented in various art forms from time immemorial, the tiger, India's national animal, resides in the very soul of the country's cultural beliefs, myths, and legends. The Tiger explores and reveals almost every facet of this amazing animal in terms of its first impressions on the 8000-year-old cave paintings of Madhya Pradesh to its presence on Mohenjodaro seals, some 4500 years ago. The volume covers tribal belief and worship, ancient tiger art, the Mughal period, and the tiger in miniature painting. The book is a testimony to the power, beauty, and magnificence of the tiger, which captured man's imagination to the extent that it was worshipped across the country" -- from publisher description.
