Buddhist Art : Sanchi to Early Mathura

"The present book `Buddhist Art : Sanchi to Early Mathura' deals with the development, adaptation and changes from Sunga art Style forms (including the art style of Bharhut, Sanchi Stupa No. II and other contemporary sites) with special reference to Stupa No. I of Sanchi to early Kusana art of Mathura.

So far no serious research work has been conducted in this direction particularly on Transitional phase of Sunga art to early Kusana art of Mathura, the present book will provide a insight in the development, transformation and evolution of Sunga art to Kusana art.

The objectives of the present book are to understand the following points:

    1. Genesis of the Stupa Architecture

    2. Symbolism in Buddhist Art : (during 3rd B.C.E.) Budhist Art : during 2nd to 1st B.C.E.

    3. Transitional phase of the Buddhist art between Sungan to Kusana period.

    4. Development and transformation of Buddhist art from Sungan to Kusana period

An in-depth study of early Buddhist art of Sanchi and Mathura in light of other centers and inscriptional evidences will certainly unfold the factors responsible for the growth, development and transformation of Buddhist sculptures in Mathura, Sanchi and elsewhere in the light of religious, political and administrative developments.

To meet the above objectives a detailed examination of all the facts available through various published sources in various fields of study have been collected and discussed, by dividing the book into seven chapters."
