Description

Moulded constantly by centripetal rather than centrifugal forces, especially in architecture, as diffusion into its physiographic divisions of coastal (Sparanta) and central (Marathwada) tracts; these were assimilated to become a new and modified art métier.

This book is perhaps the first attempt at an integrated picture of Deccan art, focusing on the beacon lights of art in the region.
