Summary "The sun is life and the moon is time (Ramsingh Urveti) Why is the sun so burningly hot, while the moon stays cool and serene? (Durga Bai) -- They need each other, to be complete. In our tradition, we think of the sun as male and the moon as female (Bhajju Shyam) Part of everyday life, yet rich in symbolic meaning, renderings of the sun and the moon are present in all folk and tribal art traditions of India. Agrarian societies have always kept track of time by referring to markers in the seasonal variations of the sun, moon and planets. They have also woven wonderful stories and myths around them. Here, for the first time, is a collection of unusual stories and exquisite art from some of the finest living artists, on this most universal of themes."--back cover
