Default Russian collection of Indian arms and armor an exhibition in Brussels.

Russian collection of Indian arms and armor, as well as objects of art at an exhibition in Brussels.

The exhibition: Fight – Pray – Love will focus on Moghul and Sikh arms and
armours from an important private European collection.
The exhibition focus on the role of weaponry in acts of workship and rituals; its sacred role in the quotidian world and in religious ceremonies and the techniques; the design and decoration symbolism intervening in its manufacture, and on the wider role this material and metaphysical phenomenon has had to play.

Was published exhibition catalog. At the exhibition a lecture Robert Elgood:
“North Indian weapons and warriors”.

Catalog: A. Bartholomew "Fight-Pray-Love" Brussels, 2015. Foreword: Jonathan Barrett

Thank you for sharing Mahratt.

I am very pleased to see Mr Bartholomew's collections of arms, armour and sculpture exhibited and catalogued, he has dedicated a lot of time and effort to put his collection together...I hope others follow in his foot steps.

Many thanks for bringing so many good recent exhibitions to light, arms and armour romance lives on strong.

Gavin

Thank you Jens. The items do look superb and the catalog will certainly make a fine reference volume for future use.

What intrigues me are the mannequins - actual carved faces with beards (and black with stark white eyes)!

ArmsAndAntiques,

From what I have learned, there is no ISBN number, no author given and no publisher given. However, it does say Asian Art in Brussels.
If this does not help maybe maharatt can help.

A book with that title is not on the Bookfinder site.

However, there was an exhibition of Indian and Chinese arms in Russia in 2015: “ Mortal beauty”. The catalog is bilingual (Russian and English) and is superb, with serious academic articles on the topic.
The objects came from 2 private Russian collections of Indian arms and from 1 collection of Chinese arms. They are by and large utilitarian, but there are some with more or less decorative elements.
ISBN 978-5903417-73-5
IMHO, these 2 exhibitions are unrelated: same year, and the Belgian one ( from what I see on very few available pics) is more “ luxury- oriented” .

If anyone here finds a source for the Belgian exhibition catalogue, please post it here.

I am not sure it will add anything to the already available information , especially after Elgood’s
monumental books on Jaipur and Jodhpur arsenals, but hope springs eternal and Pope is always right:-)

P.S. Also not on Bookfinder site
