Coming from India, yet having links with recent trends in Western art, Tantra combines eroticism, mathematics, magic and metaphysics in a view of life which offers a uniquely successful antidote to the anxieties of our time.
In this comprehensive survey of Tantric art, a lively text and a striking collection of illustrations show how Tantra invites us to follow its example through a meditative and visual exploration of the self and the world.
