Goddesses of Creation: Spiritual Traditions of Hindu India between the 3rd

December 1, 2018 - March 24, 2019

The Goddess is represented in various forms throughout the history of art in India and in classical Sanskrit religious literature. For example, the Goddess Kali can be seen to have roots in the fierce Goddesses of village traditions, and as such has been called by revered Hindu scholar A.K. Ramanujan a “Goddess of the Tooth”. In contrast, he calls the benign and motherly Lakshmi and Bhudevi “Goddesses of the Breast.” Featuring the return of the AGA’s 12th century Shiva Bhairava, the exhibition encourages the viewer to discover the multiplicity of forms and meanings in these images of the Goddess.
