Early Buddhist Art in India
Early Buddhist Art in India
Description
About the Book:

The book 'Early Buddhist Art in India' deals with the evolution of Indian art from 300 B.C. to 300 A.D, which is believed to be the formative phase of Indian art, an age of the revival of the sculptural art. The Indian artists with centuries of background in creative art with wood, ivory, clay, bamboo, devoted to use stone as a medium. This is evident from Satvahana, Sunga and Kushana period, in which the sculptures are nothing but wooden prototype. Indian art with a humble beginning as a negation of Mauryan art, having purely indegenious characteristics with two dimensional forms gradually became successful in achieving three dimentions.

The author has tried to project this book, in a simple way the history of the growth and development of art that flourished at Sanchi, Bharhut, Bodh-gaya, Karla, Bhaja, Pithalkhora, Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, etc. which later culminated to the growth of classical art of the Guptas.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
