World Religions Through Art:
Hinduism through Art
 



Hinduism has no historical founder, yet it has a vast and complex array of gods, whose deeds and attributes are recounted in holy texts, some dating back 4,000 years. These have inspired artists, sculptors and temple builders in India, where art and religion have always been inseparable.
