About The Book

Mauryan Art (c. 321-185 B.C.) is the formative stage of early Indian Art and its roots are present in Harappan Art (c. 2700-2000 B.C.) of north-western part of South Asia. A few motifs of the Mauryan art, like the back-to-back Lions, Bull, Linga & Arghya, Trisula, Nandipada, Lotus, Srivatsa, Kalash, Chiti (Ratha chiti), monolithic polished pillar and rock-cut architecture are found in the lower tradition of Harappan art which were developed into higher tradition of Mauryan Art during 3rd. c. B.C. onwards. The Mauryan artist evolved new forms of art and architecture. Religion and spiritualism later became integral part of the Mauryan Art.
