Description

Beautiful facsimile of the Kama Sutra on special paper with gold and silver. Accompanied by the book edited by the publishing house Edaf in 2005, Kama Sutra, by Vatsyayana Mallanaga, full and annotated version of Wendy Doniger and Sudhir Kakar.

This codex is composed of 119 beautiful and curious miniatures (very explicit and of high erotic content) compiled over the years, between 150 and 250 years, in different origins of India and Persia. The original miniatures are made by hand, with gold and silver on sheets written, mostly, of poems of love of Persian origin, or texts irrelevant to the content of the miniatures.

The Kama Sutra (or Kamasutra) is an ancient Hindu text that deals with the sexual behavior of man. Considered as the basic work on love in Sanskrit literature, it was written by Vatsiaiana. The full title is Vātsyāyana kāma sūtra. Chronologically, the author is placed in the Gupta period (which happened between 240 and 550 AD).

Facsimile bound in real leather with gold titles, flat spine, golden vanol guards, format 17.8 x 25 cm. 240 pages on special paper, irregular cuts on the edges, containing 119 beautiful illuminations of high sexual content. Presented in a case for its best conservation, made in golden vanol, format 18 x 26 x 4 cm.
