Round and About India
Southern Asia in stories
Listen in Round and About India to stories about India and its neighbours; about people, ideas and objects. Every item has a tale, every person has something to tell. Whether it is festivals and processions, commerce and history, gods and heroes, pilgrimages and wanderings.
India is a country of stories and storytellers. Opportunities abound in the exhibition to watch and listen to narratives about people, ideas and objects. These are the central features of dance, theatre and music performances.
The culture of the Indian subcontinent reaches around the world. A digital guide explains how this happened in five themes: Objects Relate, Textile and Trade, Stories Tell, Gods and Deities and Wanderings.
TIP: The lotus, a navel, the cosmic ocean and the serpent Ananta all appear in one of the principal creation myths of the Hindu faith. Can you find an object in which all are depicted?
