Quantity:

This book tries to answer the question as to how the temples, churches, mosques etc. play a significant role in a society and why people build structures where they congregate to perform their religious practices, totally different from the shape of their usual residential buildings. This book attempts to explain how geometry (Indian) was employed as a method for mensuration and composition before the appearance of our present numerical decimal system in 6th century AD.

A brief explanation is also presented on how in conceptual terms of most forms of artistic expression in Indian civilization were found on the same ordering principle (balance, order, harmony), which was conceived as the basis of laws of creation. In total the aim of this book is to analyze the Symmetry and Proportion in Vastu and Silpa making use of the following steps.

Firstly, the book discusses the geometric analysis of sculptures with reference to space and time division and analyzes a few compositions belonging to different periods by subjecting their photographic replicas to the analysis, through the digital technique.

Secondly, investigates the Pentagonal and Hexagonal Symmetry related to organic and inorganic systems and applies the concept to different pieces of Art and Architecture.

Thirdly, the Golden Section theme is discussed and verified through the analysis of a few compositions. Lastly, the concept of dynamic symmetry in the harmonic analysis of architectural monuments is discussed in detail. The rationale of the book is to explore the fundamental technical principles, which reflect a holistic vision, typical of Indian-view.

TESTIMONIALS

I was delighted to receive shipment of my books from You - so far away in New Delhi India. I am very eager to begin my exploration of ancient Yogic thought, and you have made that wish come true. I wasn't sure if I would ever get those particular books. Thank you very much and especially for the excellent packaging appropriate for overseas shipment. Blessings upon your whole book team!...
