This work was published in Germany in 2000 and comprises the quintessence of Prof. Dieter Schlingloff's research ion the narrative wall paintings of Ajanta, their literary sources and their cultural background. In Prof. Schlingloff's own words, "The narrative paintings of the ancient period of Ajanta are of no less quality than the contemporaneous paintings of Roman Pompeii, and like those, they are the only testimonies of the marvelous art of narrative wall-paintings elsewhere lost. The glory of ancient Indian culture and the high standard of its morality as revealed in the Ajanta paintings should become known worldwide." The narrative wall paintings form the subject matter of the present publication arranged in three volumes where the main focus remains on the relationship of the text and the image that will hopefully stimulate further discussion and investigation in similar fields. IGNCA is pleased to bring out this monumental and comprehensive work during its Silver Jubilee Celebration Year.
