India is a land of hair-styles. In no other country, has so much imagination, thought and artistic genius bent lent to devising hair styles as in India. This is apparent from the rich and kaleidoscopic variety of coiffures, delineated in the whole range of early Indian plastic art. The present book is a study of the different varieties of hair-styles, as reflected in the early Indian art. The author has examined the sculptures of Barhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Gandhara, Nagarjunakonda and Mathura and also the murals of Ajanta, which impeccably portray the varieties of hair-styles known to their periods. The coverage, from, the second century B.C. to the sixth seventh centuries A.D., records all trends and tendencies in fashion and styles.
