Indian Traditions of Visual Arts (Drik Kala): Architecture and Sculpture




Indian Visual Art - Architecture and Sculpture:

  • Although the development, maturation, and improvement of Indian art are ongoing processes, it has been divided into a number of heads to facilitate comprehension and to identify key changes over time.
  • Architecture is indeed the one of heads of visual art that shows the development of human civilization in India since the Stone Age. From the most basic forms of human habitation to magnificent temples, monuments, and palaces, Indian architecture has advanced greatly.
  • By 1000 B.C. China and India had both created advanced civilizations that stood apart from and eventually outlasted those of their Mesopotamian and Egyptian counterparts.
  • Though sculpture is the Indian art par excellence, it is in architecture that the national genius has shown its most unquestionable originality.
  • The majority of the ancient and medieval architectural and artistic artefacts from India have a religious theme.
  • That does not mean that people did not have art in their homes at those times, but domestic dwellings and the things in them were mostly made from materials like wood and clay which have perished.
  • It can be clearly presumed that Indian culture is reflected through splendid archaeological styles.
