Quantity:

This three volume book gives a complete survey of the surviving Hindu and Jaina temples in the northen half of Karnatka from the period AD 1000-1300.These temples form a homogenous body of monuments that is one of the most interesting in India.From an architectural point of view it is the most interesting of all,because an important charactersticof Indian temples-their decoration with architecture-is taken to its limits.Nowhere else in India,or for that matter in the entire world,the decoration of architecture with architecture is so abundant and so detailed.In addition to their scholarly value,the present volumes are very valuable for any layman with interest in architecture.This is because the monuments of the period are so extremely interesting for their sophisticated play with architectural elements, and so instructive.With regard to photographs this book easily surpasses all others on old indian temples.About The AuthorGerard Foekema was born in 1943 and lives in amsterdam.He graduated in physics and philosophy in 1969 and held several offices as a science administratior.He became interested in Indian architecture when visiting the subcontinent as a tourist in 1976.In 1979-80 he made his first study trip to Karnatka.After writing an article on Hoysala temples for a Dutch journal,it was the famous Mrs.J.E.Lohuizen De Leeuw who encouraged him to continue.She died prematurely in 1983,but further encouragement was givenby fruitful contacts with several specialists on Indian temple architecture,notablywith M.A.Dhaky,Adam Hardy and ajay Sinha.As a result,a large monograph on the architectural aspects of Hoysala temples was published in 1994.His books on Hoysala and Calukya temples predominantly have the character of the presentation of fects.The abundant material presented in them allows new conclusions about the temples.These are laid down in a Ph.D.thesis that he will defend in November 2003 at Leiden University.
