The history of Indian : 

Art dates back to the Maurya period.  Ashoka, the grandson of Chandragupta Maurya, the founder of the Mauryan Empire, had a change of heart after the bloody battle of Kalinga. He was deeply saddened by the violence he had committed. He later converted to Buddhism. For the propagation of Buddhism, he carved inscriptions with religious teachings and erected pillars at various places in the vast empire. Soup began to be made on the remains of the Buddha’s earthly body. Sculptures of lions, elephants and oxen were carved on the pillars of Mauryan art. 

These pillars and sculptures were also plated to make them look shiny. There is a stylized sculpture of four lions on the Sarnath pillar. After India was liberated from British slavery in 1947, this currency has been adopted as the flag of independent India. Apart from that, the sculptures of Yaksha of Patna and the sculpture of Didarganji Yakshini can be said to be complete sculptures carved in the stone of early times.

Drama and Art in Education 34 The tradition of development of Mauryan sculpture continued even in the period of successive horns. Stupas were built during this time. The shape of the soup looks like a cat’s top. And inside it the remains of the Buddha’s earthly body were placed in a container. The pillars are decorated with lotus rice etc. Sculptures of animals were placed on the door of the fence. Semi-sculptures of Yaksha and Yakshini can be seen on the pillars of the fence. Sanchi’s stupa is the most beautiful. Sanchi’s stupa has four grand turns on all four sides. On all four gates are beautiful sculptures of occasions like Jatakatha etc., animals, Yakshas and Yakshinis. The dehlality of the Yakshinis is amazing. Among the stupas around the world, the sculptural beauty of this stupa of Sanchi is benign and wonderful. Sanchi has more than one stupa. 

 On the fence around the Sanchi stupa as well as on the pillars, sculptures of Yaksha Kubera and the beautiful Yakshini are carved in a semi-sculptural style. The Buddha is not represented as a human being in the sculptures of Bharhut and Sanchi, but is represented by their respective symbols: the sacred steps, the wheel, the Bodhi tree, the horse without umbrella and the umbrella on it, the Dharmachakra, etc.

Saas ARTER  Amravati Shelley: Just as important events were taking place in the field of politics and art in North India, so was the transition period in the field of art in the banks of the Krishna and Godavari rivers in the south. As a result, the sculptural styles of Amravati rose and developed in this region.
