Illustrated Kavya


The Gaudya-Vedanta Heritage Foundation together with Goloka Productions has created a beautifully presented electronic exhibition which showcases several different illustrations of well known Sanskrit kavyas.  Black Peacock, the site, hosts classical genres, such as Mewari (above) and Khagra (below), as well as contemporary styles.  Alongside the paintings runs a commentary and occasionally the full quotation of the verse being illustrated, with an English translation.
