'A sculptor in India embarks on a work of art bearing, in his bloodstream the imagination of his whole society. In the West, the artist is an individual. The individual’s feelings, fancy and imagination form the basis of his pictures and sculptures. But in India a picture, a song, a sculpture has at its root, the imagination and belief of a whole community. In order to understand the works of Indian art one has to understand the feelings and beliefs of the whole of society.' Ananda Coomaraswamy
