Mural Decoration in Mughal Monument
64,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Mural or wall decoration is a part of the architecture that is an ancient art of the world. Form of art, comprising initially the rock art (petroglyphs, reliefs, drawings etc.) and traces of paint work in the rock-cut caves, dates back to pre-historic Murals at Lascaux (France) to the ceremonial Murals of ancient Egypt, Greece, Mesopotamia and India, has survived and flourished through time during the development and destruction of various layers of civilizations. Recent discoveries and dating of Blombos cave engravings (c. 70,000 BCE), Dicpkloof eggshell engravings (c.60, 000 BCE), and Sulawesi Cave art of Indonesia (37,900 BCE) show that even the pre-historic men had fair understanding of art and aesthetics. Some of the most remarkable instances of Mural arts are found in Africa (Tassili cave frescoes in Sahara Desert around 6,000 BC), Egypt (around 3150 BC), Europe (Minoan Palaces around 1700-1600 BC, and Pompeii around 100 BC-AD 79), Asia (India, Bhimbetka rock paintings of pre-historic era approximately 30,000 years old and frescoes on the ceilings and 29 rock-cut temples of Ajanta Caves made in 2nd century BC - 480 AD, North Korea, the Goguryeo tomb 37 BC-AD 668 etc.).

Timon of Phlius
159,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Early Skepticism and its founder, Pyrrho of Elis, were introduced to the world in the third century BCE by the poet and philosopher Timon of Phlius. This is the first book-length study in English of the fragments of Timon’s works. Of his more than 100 titles, four fragments remain of a catalogue elegy, the Indalmoi, and 133 verses of the Silloi, a hexameter parody in three books in which Timon ridicules philosophers of all periods whom he observes on a trip to Hades. Dee L. Clayman reconstructs the books of the Silloi starting from an outline in Diogenes Laertius and the book numbers assigned to a few fragments by their sources. This has not been attempted since Wachsmuth’s edition of 1885, and carries his approach further by careful observation of syntactic and contextual clues in the text. Using the Greek text of Lloyd-Jones and Parsons of 1983, all of the extant fragments are translated into English and discussed as literature, rather than as source material for the history of philosophy. Separate chapters demonstrate that the principle Hellenistic poets, Callimachus, Theocritus and Apollonius of Rhodes, were aware of Timon’s work specifically, and of Skepticism generally. The book concludes with a definition of “Skeptical aesthetics” that places many of the characteristic features of Hellenistic literature in a skeptical milieu.

Aristophanes' Frogs
26,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Aristophanes is widely credited with having elevated the classical art of comedy to the level of legitimacy and recognition that only tragedy had hitherto achieved, and producing some of the most intriguing works of literature to survive from classical Greece in the process. Among them, Frogs has a unique appeal; written and performed in 405 BCE, the comedy won first prize in that year's Lenaea festival competition and was re-performed soon thereafter--a rare occurrence for comedies at the time. Frogs has been admired and quoted by readers and critics ever since, a testament to its timeless appeal; it remains among the most approachable of Aristophanes' plays, as well as perhaps the richest of all in insights it provides into ancient Greek cultural attitudes and values. Mark Griffith's study of the Frogs is the first single book to offer a reliable and sophisticated account of this play in light of modern notions of culture, performance, democracy, religion, and aesthetics. After placing the work in its original historical, cultural, and biographical context, Griffith goes on to underscore the originality of Frogs in relation to parallel developments in the tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides, among others. He highlights the play's unique portrayal of the figure of Dionysus, the Eleusinian mystery cult, and the question of life after death. This title provides not only a detailed analysis of the play and a concise account of its reception, but also a succinct introduction to ancient Greek comedy, exploring the extraordinary range of theatrical conventions, moral and aesthetic assumptions, and religious beliefs that underlie the action of Aristophanes' play. The book provides an invaluable companion to Aristophanes and the theater of classical Greece for students and general readers alike.
