|Since times immemorial India is far famed in the arena of art and sculpture.And the long and rich heritage of Indian sculptures all goes to the credit of some renowned Indian artists without whom the sculptures wouldn’t have attained that height of glory.The finest sculptures in India dates back to the Indus Valley and Harappa civilization. Later with the emergence of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, India produced some of the finest sculptures of the world.
The Buddhist sculptures of the various schools of art like Gandhara, Sarnath, Sanchi and Mathura are still famous all over the globe for their mystical essence. On the other hand Hindu Sculptures of the fourth, fifth and sixth centuries including the world renowned sculptures of the Ajanta, Ellora and Elephanta caves marked the revival of Hinduism. The trend of sculptures continues up to the contemporary era in an effervescent and vivacious approach.
The Romans and the Greek sculptures mostly represent the Roman and the Greek Gods and Goddesses. Many of the Roman sculptures are purely Roman in their conception but some of these sculptures are the exact replicas of the Greek statues. The Greek sculptures are in fact believed to lend beauty, importance or heroic quality to the entity represented or portrayed.
