Incredible journey

Illustrations for the Hindu epic the Ramayana are on show this summer in the British Library. Rama is a prince god, incarnated as a perfect example of human life, who rescues his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana, helped by an army of monkeys. Every year pilgrims retrace his journey, and a reading of the Ramayana is said to save hearers from sin.
