 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The book, Buddhist Bronzes from Sirpur is a detailed, well researched account of a hoard of bronze sculptures recovered during Sirpur excavation in 2005-2008. The recovery of this hoard along with raw material, crucibles and crucible stands form of Buddha Vihar located in industrial area in the Capital of Dakshin-Kosala at Sirpur, on the Bank of Mahanadi dispels the earlier held view that bronze were imported from Gujarat and Bihar. It is now established that in seventh-eighth cent. A.D., during the time of Pandu-Vamsi rulers at Sirpur was a great trading centre where a variety of objects were manufactured and exported.

The finely moulded sculptures with silver and gold platings clearly demonstrate the well developed sculptural art both in stone and metal in the this part of the presently entrenched so called back-ward area. First time find like Vajra etc. clearly show that Buddhism was well in Dakshina Kosala right from third cent. B.C., to at least tenth cent. A.D.

The book will fill up the yawning gap in the development of Art in India and remove misconceptions. This continuation of metal crafts mamship is still surviving in the remote jungles of Baster in particular and in many villages of Chhattisgarh the ancient Dakshin Kosala. The book is a valuable reference book both for scholars and students of art and history.
