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.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
