This commemorative volume substantiates the works and thought of Dhanapal - a great Indian sculptor.
The fact that Dhanapal was an extraordinarily talented sculptor is widely accepted and ad proved in many ways. Like Ram Kinkar for Bengal School, Dhanapal was to the contemporary school of South Indian Sculpture. His position is as important as the position of K C S Panicker, the fore-runner of South Indian School of contemporary painting. It is no doubt that Dhanapal would have been a great painter and draughtsman, had he chosen painting.
Dhanapal was a versatile genius. He was a sculptor of great acclaim and a teacher of great respect. He was an artist who has contributed much to the Tamil Theatre, Classical Dance, Choreography, Play writing and for many other areas of performing arts.
