'The freedom and beauty of the green outdoors-soft beds of

grass and ferns; the caress of the breeze; the scent of flowers;

birdsong and moonlight-inflame desire in the nayak (hero)

and the nayika (heroine) in ancient and medieval Indian art and

literature... Whether the nayak and nayika be mortals or gods,

love is always erotic, and its most beautiful expression happens

in the lap of nature, as the lovers give themselves to each other

without inhibition beneath the open sky.'

In this exquisite book, one of India's most respected authorities on art,

aesthetics and pre-modern sexuality brings us images that celebrate erotic

love in the outdoors. With a brilliant introduction providing the context, she

has put together glorious visual evidence of the freedom that lovers once

enjoyed in South Asia.
