Indian Myth & Legend

I bring you once again illustrations that transcend space and time by Warwick Goble,—these for a 1913 edition of Indian Myth and Legend by Donald MacKenzie.

Goble remains firmly within my top 5 favorite classic illustrators. Once again I have to say that the sum is greater than the parts of his work, defying logical analysis of his magical art.

Many any thanks for this. It's fascinating to see how the British interpreted India... just like the Gothic and renaissance masters interpreted Christian and Greek Mythological themes.
