Indian Traditions of Visual Arts (Drik Kala): Sculptural Art

  • Sculpture Art is three-dimensional art, generally made up of a single piece of material such as images, statues, seals, pots, and objects with artistic embellishment. 
  • Sculpture, which has its roots in the Indus Valley Civilization and was frequently used there, is one of India's oldest art forms (C.3300-1300 BCE).
  • Sculptures are often made from one of three materials: clay, metal, or rock. Rock.
  • As much as they had excelled in terracotta sculpting and stone carving, Indian sculptors had also mastered the bronze medium and the casting technique.
  • Along with it, the method for creating bronze, a metal alloy created by mixing copper, zinc, and tin, was discovered.

    Example - Kailasa temple, Verul

    The entire Kailasa temple in Verul is a unique monolithic sculpture (carved out of a single rock).
