Goddes|Woman. Devi Cults & Traditional Female Roles in India

Goddes|Woman. Devi Cults & Traditional Female Roles in India




Hopp museum

VALOCKSKI. R.[ed.], Goddes| Woman. Devi Cults and Traditional Female Roles in India, Budapest 2018. Publisher: Budapest: The Museum of Fine Arts - Hopp Ferenc Museum of Asitaic Art //ISBN: 978-315-5304-84-2. Soft cover 31 x 21 cm. 267 pages with colour illustrations and archive photos.
"On the Indian subcontinent, the different regional cults of the Goddess, or Devi, as she is known in India, are rooted deep in the past. From the age of the Indus Valley Civilisation until the arrival of the globalised world of the twenty-first century, the people of India have long worshipped Devi, and continue to do so. The Goddess – like Hinduism itself – has many faces, and every different face and embodiment of Devi is accompanied by a wealth of different traditions. She is the youthful Beauty, who enchants mortals and gods alike. She is the faithful Wife, seated tenderly in her husband’s lap. She is the Mother, the birth-giver and creator of all humankind. But she is also the belligerent Warrior Goddess, who destroys evil and saves the world from catastrophe. 
The primary aim of the latest exhibition at the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts is to present the different faces of Hindu Goddesses through the traditional female roles they fulfil. Where the Goddess appears as a beauty, a wife, a mother and a warrior, the exhibition seeks to answer the question of how these idealised female roles are manifested in earthly society. The objects on show range from classical Indian sculptures to contemporary graphic novels, underlining the continuity of subject and form between ancient and modern Hindu art. 
The majority of the exhibits are part of the Indian collection at the Hopp Museum, and they are joined by works reflecting the unique visual world of the living artist Abhishek Singh, which are centred on the identity of Devi. This is the first exhibition at the Hopp Museum for several decades to concentrate on Hindu art, and it encompasses the religious cults of the earliest days of Indian history, as well as the social roles and image of women today."

NAGAS BIRDS ELEPHANTS Trad. dres from SEA

NAGAS BIRDS ELEPHANTS Trad. dres from SEA




textiles

BRITTIG,V. FAJCSAK,G.[ed.], NAGAS BIRDS ELEPHANTS. Traditional dress from Mainland Southeast Asia, Budapest 2016. Soft cover 30 x 23,5 cm. 230 pages, richly illustrated in colour. Very small fold bottom right front cover
"In the book, Southeast Asian textiles are examined from several different angles – geographical, chronological and anthropological; starting with a presentation of textile types, their ritualistic roles and their systems of patterning, the distinguishing features of the different peoples – their beliefs, their customs and their celebrations – are approached through depictions of their traditional dress and materials. 
The geographical scope of the selected materials was restricted to mainland Southeast Asia. The earliest items discussed are Khmer-Empire statues from the 12th–13th centuries, while the most recent items are textiles collected – mostly “in the field” – in the 19th–20th centuries. 
This volume also takes a peek into the practical side of collecting artistic materials in Southeast Asia. Close to a hundred objects are
presented in the volume: alongside valuable – and very rarely seen – items from Hungarian public collections (Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts, Museum of Ethnography), there are numerous interesting Southeast Asian textiles acquired by private collectors and scientific researchers."
