Re: Query about a Sanskrit text Saklādhikāra by Agastya

Dear All,

Recently, I came across references of a Sanskrit text Saklādhikāra by Agastya. He seems to be the first author to systematise the practice of image making in South India. I am particularly interested to know more about this text, any scholarly work on its history and English translation of this work.
