Meet the third release from the “Moment of Love” series dedicated to the “Kama Sutra”!
“Kama Sutra” is a book that reveals the main premise of the oldest Indian treatise. It concerns various aspects pertaining to the pleasure-oriented faculties of human life.The “Kama Sutra” coin from the “Moments of Love” series was on everyone’s lips for a long time. That’s why the “Kama Sutra II” coin came into being in a short time.
Remind you that “Kama Sutra” is an ancient Indian book where it goes about courtship, marriage, and love-making. Translated from Sanskrit, the word sutra means “thread” or “text”, while kama means “desire, pleasure, love, or sex” and at the same time is the name of the god of erotic love. Together, Kama Sutra is translated as “Teachings on Desire.” As well as the first coin, “Kama Sutra II” depicts the passionate kiss of a naked woman and man. The idea of the coin is that the “Kama Sutra” book can teach everyone about the value of having an “organized” way to express the couple’s love and desire.
The coin depicts two lovers who are in a passion. Its background is adorned with flowers’ pattern drawings that are typical for Indian culture and region. The reverse depicts the passionate kiss of a naked woman and man. The obverse features a close-up face-to-face portrait of the pair, with an intricate pattern between the two and is the same for all coins from this series.
