Rama: Hero and Avatar

Title:Rama: Hero and Avatar
Author:Dehejia, Vidya
Enumeration:Vol. 45 Issue no. 3; March 1994, p. viii, 1-14
Abstract:The story of Rama is popular because he is both a human hero and an avatara of Vishnu. He is represented in terracotta panels and stucco reliefs adorning brick and stone temples, some relating to the Gupta period. The Ramayana was regularly copied on illustrated manuscripts between 1020 and the 19th century and adopted in Sanskrit literature of the Gupta, post-Gupta, and later periods. The Rama legend spread throughout India and southeast Asia, and in recent years the Ramayana seems to have reached a wider audience than ever before.
