New York Times Review of the exhibition
17 April 1955
FOR thousands of years India has been famous for her fabrics, costumes and craftsmanship. In ancient Rome her muslins were known as "woven winds." This expression reflects the Indian concept of cloth, for the Veda sees the fabric of the world as woven by the gods. Decorative objects and jewelry, too, often have a religious inspiration, meaning or purpose.
