Technique of Gandharan and Indo-Afghan Stucco Images
Technique of Gandharan and Indo-Afghan Stucco Images
Description
From the Jacket

Never before the present attempt the technique of Gandharan and Indo-Afghan stucco modeling is described comprehensively, though different archaeologists have touched this or that aspect of it only in a piecemeal manner in excavation reports of various sites. The entire technique is treated in this work, in the same order, in which a modeler creates images. Above all, the subject is viewed in its own context, i.e against the Indian background. This also has not happened till now that is why the foreign influence noticed in this or that aspect was liberally extended to all aspects and the whole creation was traced to an alien culture without justification. The present analytical approach to the technique reveals, plainly enough that the Gandharan and indo-Afghan artists proceeded in their work having been guided by the indigenous unbaked clay modeling, which they were traditionally practising for generations. Hence their technique of stucco modeling, too, is largely indigenous, though the impetus to use stucco as a medium of image making probably came from the Graeco-Roman traditions. The stucco as a material is however known in India two and a half thousand years earlier then the beginning of the Gandharan School of art as such.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
