Karel van Kooij, born in Arnhem, the Netherlands, in 1939. Ph.D. from Utrecht University. Assistant Professor of Oriental languages and Cultures at Utrecht University.

Fellow (1 September 1980 – 31 July 1981)

I researched the history of South-Asian art, in particular the iconographical aspects. I worked on an English translation of a Sanskrit work, the Kalikapurana, which contains many important iconographical data in the context of elaborate rules about the ritual worship of the goddess Kalika.
