Bollywood Party

This post was inspired by a sneak preview of Sanjay Patel's delightful illustrations of
Ganesha's Sweet Tooth for Chronicle Books, out next September, at the Bologna Book Fair. 
The rich iconography, vibrant colors and spiritual exuberance of Indian art
 have long been an inspiration for scores of Western artists. 
And has there ever been a more endearing God than Ganesha?

Jean Carlu, 1960

 Charles Nicolas, The Elephant Book, 1965, thanks to Glen Mullaly
