Item description for Ajanta, History and Development: Arguments About Ajanta (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik 2, 18-2) by Walter M. Spink...

Volume Two begins with the contentious, yet challenging, views of Hans Bakker and Richard Cohen, both of whom are involved with an overview of Ajanta's development. This is explored further in shorter essays by Karl Khandalavala, Arvind Jamkhedkar, and Brahmanand Deshpande. At the same time, the author presents a detailed analysis of the form and development of Cave 26, as a model upon which his other arguments are built.

The second part of Volume Two deals specifically with patronage, and with the dramatic changes that took place almost from the moment of Harisena's death late in 477. The attitudes and objectives of Ajanta's original patrons were now radically transformed, as the dreams of the past were left behind.

In later chapters we take up the intriguing problem of why Ajanta's original (Hinayana) caves were not refurbished as soon as the Vakataka patrons became involved in the development of the site early in the 460s, even though in the years shortly! after Harisena's death they had become the ground for many intrusions.

Volume Two closes with a comprehensive and most welcome Appendix on Ajanta inscriptions prepared by Richard S. Cohen, who has kindly allowed its inclusion here.
