Animals in stone

Animals in stone- Indian fauna sculptured through time.

The art history of South Asia covers a time span of roughly four and a half thousand years. During this period, a vast number of animal stone sculptures has been produced, ranging from the pre-historic period till today and covering a great variety of motifs and imagery in different regions and religious traditions. Even so, the number of studies devoted to these animal sculptures has remained extremely limited. The project Animals in Stone aimed at filling this knowledge gap and resulted in a textbook and lectures.
