Sculpture—one of the most enduring forms of art known to man—has played a significant role in the evolution of Eastern culture. Sculptures were a key indicator of the cultural achievements of the Harappan civilisation, and became an important influence on the development of Mauryan and Gandhara art in the Indian subcontinent.
From the prosperity and spirituality of Chola art to the intricacies of the visual language of the Pala-Sena empire, sculpture has been used to express a wide range of themes. Although continuously evolving, sculptures are still a prominent method of expressing and commemorating both historical figures and events.
On this art walk at the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarh, let's explore the stories of the past and understand the silent language of sculptures.
