Produktbeschreibung

In Royal Umbrellas of Stone: Memory, Politics, and Public Identity in Rajput Funerary Art, Melia Belli Bose provides the first analysis of Rajput chatris ("umbrellas"; cenotaphs) built between the sixteenth to early-twentieth centuries. New kings constructed chatris for their late fathers as statements of legitimacy. During periods of political upheaval patrons introduced new forms and decorations to respond to current events and evoke a particular past. Offering detailed analyses of individual cenotaphs and engaging with art historical and epigraphic evidence, as well as ethnography and ritual, this book locates the chatris within their original social, political, and religious milieux. It also compares the chatris to other Rajput arts to understand how arts of different media targeted specific audiences.
