ANCIENT ARTISTS AND ART-ACTIVITY
ANCIENT ARTISTS AND ART-ACTIVITY
Description

About the Book:

The monograph documents, within a chronological framework, epigraphic data concerning the various categories of artisans, their qualifications, caste-characteristics, hierarchical set-up, and their active involvement in various crafts relating to sculptures and monuments. The regional distribution-pattern of artisans and their mobility, both physical and hierarchical, has also been briefly analysed.

In the light of the above, a plea has been made to evolve a model of study which could keep in view the critical factors concerning artisans and which may define properly the role of the practitioners of the craft vis-a-vis the canons of architecture and iconography. Such a model of study may be of great value in explaining the evolution of particular styles of sculptures, their various nuances and idioms, and their spread.

About the Author:

Dr. R. N. Misra has been teaching ancient Indian history and archaeology at the University of Saugar for over a decade. He has joined the Indian Institute Of Advanced Study as a Visiting Fellow in 1973 to study the Kalachuri sculptures of Khandesh and central India. Dr. Misra is the author of Bharhut (in Hindi) and a number of papers on Indian antiquity and art. His forthcoming book Yaksha Cult and Iconography is expected to be published shortly.
