Clare Spark talks with Dr. Pratapaditya Pal, the curator for Islamic and Indian art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The role of mythology in Indian tradition, especially as regards the Heeramaneck collection. Pal starts with talking about the Standing Ganesha sculpture in LACMA's collection that dates from around the 16th-17th century A.D, and also discusses the Avatars of Vishnu. He discusses the altar at his mother's (and most orthodox women's homes) in India, and how she worships -- that it is the same thing priests do at temples. Pal says that the problem of making the study of art so intellectual is that we lose the closeness with the object and the significance of the creation. Contains background music for ambient effect.
