"Accompanying a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, this lavish and engaging book surveys the imaginative expressions of the divine female found in the art of India, Tibet and Nepal. Countless images of the goddess in Hindu and Buddhist art depict her variously as seductive, benevolent, malevolent: a loving mother, a compassionate saviour or rage personified. With her male counterpart she can be the compliant consort, the passionate lover, or a symbol of the non-duality of ultimate reality." Publisher's description.
