Early Indian Sculpture
Early Indian Sculpture
Description
About the Book:

These profusely illustrated volumes offer a scholarly analysis of Indian sculpture from c. 300 BC to c. 500 AD. The dates chosen are not arbitrary, for although a highly civilized nation existed in the North long before the Aryan and Dravidian invasion, little is known about the art of India before the fourth century BC. In the third century AD, during the Gupta period, an important change took place in the Indian spirit : sensualism was to be divorced from spiritualism for a long time. Within these boundaries, the eminent scholar distinguishes three phases: an early period, full of confusion and contradiction; a middle or golden period, full of order and strength; and a late period, full of exuberance both of form and outlook. The author's excellent chronology and detailed descriptions cover the Maurya period, when Chandragupta (321-297) wished to imitate the magnificence of Alexander's court; figural sculpture and memorial pillars of Asoka, Chandragupta's grandson; the relief's from Barhut in the Center and from Amaravati in the South; the magnificent Buddhist alto-relievo at Sanchi; the sculpture of the Gandhara school; and the Buddhist sculpture of the North-West, North and South. Throughout the centuries studies in the relationship between sculpture and architecture is explored. From the very start there seemed to be a desire to subject structure to sculpture, even though in the middle period - between 50 BC and 75 AD - last period examined, the victory of sculpture was complete, when the representations on the stupas of Amaravati threw a glittering net over the entire structure.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
