I have set up this blog as an resource for Mahabharata related images, especially of performances that use the Mahabharata as a source text.This is part of an Independent Research Project that I am currently writing as part of my MA in Performance Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins, London.

With this research, I’m putting putting my money where my mouth is and bringing together evidence of the pervasiveness of the Mahabharata, not just in India but in Asia. Cross-referenced with tags and categories, I am trying to build new structures and way of looking at all this visual material in a way that will open up new possibilities for interpretation.

Every attempt has been made to keep track of this images on this site. Each image is linked to the site or blog where I found it. If you intend to use an image from my blog, please link it back to the original URL. If I have used an image whose source has not been credited, please inform me via the comments field below and I will gladly add this information. If you have images you would like to share or point me towards, please leave a link in the comments field below.

Thank you for visiting
