Acerca de


Most studies of indian armor have concentrated on mughal arms from northern india, and there has been no serious study of hindu arms since the nineteenth century robert elgood seeks to fill this scholarly gap with hindu arms and ritual , a new and richly illustrated study that examines pieces from the tanjore palace armory in south india tanjore arms reveal a wealth of information about hindu warrior society through the intricate and symbolic iconography carved on them as elgood shows, inscribed gods, goddesses, and sacred animals and plants infused the weaponry with divine powers of assistance drawing on evidence from various sources, such as ancient manuscripts and contemporary art, elgood also challenges the commonly held opinion that most south indian arms date from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries instead, he argues, many pieces were made during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and are attributable to the vijayanagara and nayaka courts this beautifully illustrated work is an invaluable contribution to the historical study of indian arms and material culture
