This was the old home page image. It wasn't animated (wait a few and it'll mutate), but it was an image map. I painted it in 1992. Click on it and it will take you to the next screen from which you can choose a variety of non-specialist demonstrations of India's sights, sounds, and history.

Revised site note 1/26/10: This page is left as it was originally with minor modifications to font and background color for ease of reading. These portions of the site are left largely unchanged as part of virtual palimpsest. The new site launch is available here. Navigation links at the bottom follow the original old pathways through the site.
