Jewellery of Karnataka

Title:Jewellery of Karnataka
Author:Nanda Gopal, Choodamani
Abstract:This is the first study to present a group of jewellery, some of it documented, from the collections of the temples of Karnataka -- Hampi, Melukote, Mysore. Preserved in religious centres by temple trustees, this jewellery is brought out for display and to decorate deities at the annual festival of a temple. Symbolic of power and dignity, crowns gracing the images of gods, goddesses, and their retinues, are among the most valuable items of the temple treasuries.
