Description
This catalog of South Asian sculpture offers glimpses into the richness and variety of sculptural traditions that flourished in the Indian subcontinent, with works ranging from the early centuries AD to the efflorescence of highly elaborate Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain temple complexes in the medieval period. Here are fragments from Buddhist stupas and temples, from the mountainous northwestern region of ancient Gandhara (primarily modern Pakistan and Afghanistan), and monumental granite figures that once adorned Hindu temples along the Kaveri delta in central Tamil Nadu at the southernmost periphery of India. Almost all of the pieces are depictions of the divine, embodying particular localized conceptualizations of the perfect body as it varied from region to region over time, and signaling the culturally specific ways in which each region's makers and devotional communities understood, imagined, and depicted celestial beings.
