The book ‘Buddhist Art of Orissa’ presents in lucid style the Buddhist art and architecture of the State that emerged and developed here from the time of Ashok (3rd century B.C.) till about 11th century A.D. showing the gradual evolution of peculiar Mahayanic and Vajrayanic sculptures, bronze icons of typical varieties with exquisite workmanship and magnificent monastic; institutions, colossal stupas enshrined with befitting icons. Buddhist art is not an isolated phenomenon. It flourished simultaneously with other forms of art maintaining close liaison and interaction with them, despite the sectarian rivalry, jealousy, intolerance etc. in one chapter of this book the interaction between Brahmanical and Buddhist icons has been clearly elucidated. Field data based on thorough survey of the Buddhist sites, excavated materials and the museums and analyzed in relation to textual references will be stimulating and informative to the scholars and even to general readers.Printed Pages: 226 with 94 col.
