Form of Beauty Dec 28, 2007
In true sense this is a wonderful addition to my acqisitions. It is no doubt in my mind that it will become a collector's item over years. More over this site price was unbelievably low. Go for it if you can still buy it! Santosh
Lovely Apr 2, 2007
The art of BG Sharma is breathtaking. This is a very beautiful coffee-table sized hardback book. I got the small softbound version first, but found it difficult to fully appreciate the art that way.
this book is small Sep 29, 2005
this book is only 4 inches by 4 inches hence the small price. not usable for a reference book.
Gorgeous. Poetic. Magnificent. Nov 11, 2003
Words don't do the artist justice here, though the lovely sacred verses and captions by Swami Tripurari frame the art work in its proper religious context. Simply stated, it must be seen. It's rare indeed to discover an artist or writer who helps you understand the glory of God and his miraculous gifts. This is one such example. A consummate masterpiece.
exquisite, a jewel of a book Feb 5, 2003
This book is page after page of the most glorious paintings. It may be small in size but it is not small in quality. Anyone that is interested in India's devotional paintings or just in fine art would enjoy this little treasure. It left me wanting more; wanting to see more art of this kind and caliber and wanting to read the stories the artist was illustrating. I can't recommend it highly enough. It is a real bargain.
