Crafted to be awe-inspiring as well as lethal, arms and armour from South Asia are also objects of beauty and sophisticated craftsmanship. In addition to their use as weapons, they are symbols of royalty and often carry religious signifiers.
Catch our discussion with Dr Rachel Parikh and understand the exquisite weapons from South Asia and their fascinating stories. Dr Rachel Parikh is Assistant Curator with the Worcester Art Museum, Massachusetts, looking after their formidable collection of Asian objects, especially arms and armour.
