Woman in all her various forms and roles is a theme that runs through the whole history of Indian art. This exhibition presents over 400 items. From the Náprstek Museum come household and other everyday items that represent the best of Indian artistic craftsmanship, while the National Gallery has provided paintings and sculpture. Women - whether goddesses, semi-divine or earthly beings - are represented in a host of different ways, showing the variety and richness of Indian art tradition.
