Because clothing, food, and shelter are basic human needs, they provide excellent entries to cultural values and individual aesthetics. Everyone gets dressed every day, but body art has not received the attention it deserves as the most common and universal of material expressions of culture. The Grace of Four Moons aims to document the clothing decisions made by ordinary people in their everyday lives. Based on fieldwork conducted primarily in the city of Banaras, India, Pravina Shukla conceptualizes and realizes a total model for the study of body art—understood as all aesthetic modifications and supplementations to the body. Shukla urges the study of the entire process of body art, from the assembly of raw materials and the manufacture of objects, through their sale and the interactions between merchants and consumers, to the consumer's use of objects in creating personal decoration.

Das Meer, die Erde, die Sterne, die Liebe und der Tod: Eine große Verserzählung über die Erschaffung der Welt. Von der Erschaffung der Erde und der Gestirne erzählt dieses Epos, von der Kultivierung des Bodens und dem launischen Meer, vor allem aber von den Begegnungen mit dem schemenhaften Land im Norden, um dessen Tochter die Herren Wäinämöinen, Lemminkäinen und Ilmarinen gleichermaßen werben. Doch auf die Freier warten gefährliche Aufgaben. Kalewala, das Land des Urvaters Kalewa, ist Schauplatz dieses groß angelegten Freskos der mythenumsponnenen Frühzeit Finnlands. Auf zahlreichen Fußreisen hatte Elias Lönnrot - im Geist des spätromantischen 19. Jahrhunderts - Tausende von Versen mündlich überlieferter Lieder gesammelt, Lieder epischen, lyrischen und beschwörenden Inhalts, die er in der Folge zu einem teils heldisch-kriegerischen, teils zauberhaft-magischen Epos verband. Viele namhafte Übersetzer haben sich am »Kalewala« versucht, doch erst Gisbert Jänickes Arbeit ist es, die den höchsten Ansprüchen genügt: Sie ist vollständig, beruht in allen Details auf dem Original, berücksichtigt auch die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse und besticht durch ihre geschmeidig fließende Eleganz.

A stereotypical view of the nineteenth-century British in India, which might be characterised as one of deliberate isolation and segregation from their surroundings, has recently been complemented by one evoking a high degree of integration and closer co-existence in the eighteenth century. Focusing on a period which straddles this apparent shift, this book explores a variety of ways in which British residents in India represented their lives through visual material, and reveals a more nuanced position. Consideration of these images, which have often been overlooked in the scholarly literature, opens up questions of identity facing the British population in India at this time and facing colonial societies more generally, and issues about the role of visual culture in negotiating them. It also underlines the fragile and contested nature of identity: the colonists’ self-fashioning encompassed not only expressions of difference from their Indian setting, but also what distinguished them from their compatriots back in Britain, as well as engaging with metropolitan attitudes towards, and prejudices about, them.
