About the Book

Ever so many tomes have been written on early Indian art, particularly sculptures-both in stone and clay. Of special importance has been the, treatment of woman in the early stages. She has been mostly considered primarily as a manifestation of mother-goddess and a symbol of fertility, but Nobody has seen the figures as a simple woman, A Human being in flesh and blood with all the human frailties. Here is a Book in which The Author has tried to analyse the human aspect of womanhood, as a housewife, as salabhanjika as pleasure loving female etc.

The book is divided into six chapters. The first-Introduction deals with the specifies-source, media, etc. The second one takes us through the Maurya-Sunga art representations; the third traverses through the art of the Satavahanas and the Ikshvakus. The fourth and fifth consider the art delineations of the Kusanas and the Gupta-Vakatakas

In chapter six the author epitomises his findings and says that one should consider female figurines as representatives of the fair sex, as dampati, a lover and the beloved and not merely as mother goddess or fertility symbol.
