Exhibition Details

The Ramayana, or the journey of Rama, is one of the world's great epics. Follow this tale of love, loyalty, betrayal and the victory of good over evil depicted in exquisite detail in 101 Indian miniature paintings.

See Rama, the story's hero, who is admired for his honour, valour and compassion. Discover how he wins his bride, loses his wife and the title to his kingdom, and narrowly escapes with his life before regaining all that was taken from him.

Revealing the rich diversity of regional painting styles between the early 17th and mid-19th centuries in India, Ramayana is at once an alluring narrative and the story of an artistic mode of expression.
