Ramayana in Canberra
Someone told me today that there has been an exhibition of Indian miniatures at the National Gallery of Australia, in Canberra. They are on loan from the National Museum in New Delhi.
Looks like I've missed this one, as it finishes tomorrow and I don't think I'll be able to make the long drive from Sydney to Canberra and back.
The theme of the exhibition is the Ramayana, the story of Lord Rama, one of the ten avatars of Shri Vishnu, the Preserver of existence. The epic narrative of the Ramayana is the inspiration for many series of Indian miniatures.
