INDIAN TALES: ANCIENT SCULPTURES

India has been a destination to the art lovers from ancient times. Indian culture is rich and diverse and as a result unique in its very own way. Examples of Indian art are still visible to the world. Indian art encompasses Painting, Embroidery, Architecture and Sculpture-art, Music, Indian martial arts etc. Although all these art forms are so magnetizing that it’s hard not to talk about but still I would like to shed light to the sculpture art form which has established unmatched levels of excellence in India.

Sun TempleIndian Sculpture art is as old as the Indian culture itself is. Sculpture art is initiated from The Indus Civilization which is flourished from about 2500 BC to 1700 BC. Later, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism developed this art further. Most of these sculptures Indian Sculptureswere stone carvings. This art is still alive and can be seen within the famous temples in various states of India. These temples are the magnificent examples of Indian sculpture art. Peoples from all over the world visit these fascinating locations to experience the beauty of these temples. Some of spectacular temples are Ajanta-Ellora Caves, Konark temple, Khujraho temples, Dilwara temples, Rameshvaram, Mahabalipuram and Sanchi Stupa etc which have stunned the world by their artistic work and beauty. Many of India’s current sculptures depict icons from Hinduism and Buddhism, as they did for centuries. Intricately carved stone and bronze statues of Krishna, Shiva, Rama, Ganesha, Hanuman, Saraswati, Kali, Vishnu, and the Buddha are all popular sculptures of modern India. Most of these sculptures decorated major shrines.
