The True Mark of Civilisation?
6 days ago
At a time when the word "civilisation" is the subject of great debate, Kamila Shamsie explores the meaning of the word through the prism of Indian art.
"If you really want to understand how the world's civilisations interact and meld", she writes, "go and look at the art of Gandhara".

Rated 4 out of
a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
