New Delhi, June 20 (IANS) An exhibition here will present the rich and ancient cultural treasure of Yoga in the form of sculptures, paintings, scrolls, illustrated manuscripts and books which explain the key aspects of it.
The exhibition titled “Yoga in Indian Visual Arts”, will get underway at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) from June 21 to June 30.
IGNCA, through this exhibition, is documenting Indian art collections lying in museums abroad.
“We are displaying collections that have been taken from the foreign museums to present the heritage which has gone outside the country,” the curator of the exhibition Virender Bangroo told IANS.
“The visual imagery depicted in the artworks transverse the limitations of space and time,” he said.
“Yoga is a medium to rise above the visual world and to dive deep into the spiritual experience, the latter being a source of ultimate and eternal pleasure,” said Bangroo.
“It reflects the rich philosophical and cultural currents that traversed the Indian subcontinent over thousands of years,” he added.
“It has embraced a variety of practices and orientations, borrowing from and influencing a vast array of Indic religious traditions down through the centuries,” he explained.
