SSSS : SNAKE ART AND ALLEGORY / Gita Wolf, Ianna Andréadis / Tara Books


Snake lore and legend from across India, illustrated by a contemporary French artist.


Gita Wolf, Ianna Andréadis Standing in for our deepest fantasies and fears, the snake is as much a creature of our minds as it is of the forest and fields. Combining art and legend, this stunning hand-printed book invokes the beauty and terror of Indian snake lore: from the enigmatic snake goddess Manasa to Buddha’s sheltering snake. The legends are complemented by the work of contemporary French artist Ianna Andréadis, who was inspired by the collection of the Musée du quai Branly in Paris. SSSS: Snake Art and Allegory is silkscreen-printed by hand on handmade paper.
