India had a fine tradition in the art of painting, and most of the paintings of the early medieval period were based on religious themes and showed episodes from the Hindu epics or Jain and Buddhist literature.
Sculptural images of the Shunga period (c. 184—72 BC) are characterised by low relief, bicornate turbans on male figures, the symbolic representation of the Buddha and narratives of his life. The stupas of Bharhut, Sanchi and Bodh Gaya are the great monuments of the age. The yaksha/yakshi (demon/demoness) statues of the Maurya and Shunga periods represent the influence of folk cult and the excellence of the Indian sculptural tradition.
we take great pride in the textiles section. From sarees and suits to home decor and accessories, each of our merchandise constitutes a wearable work of art. We source them from the most authentic of family-run handlooms in a bid to bring to the fore India's endemic weaves, stitches, and embroideries.
