Art work shows the clothing and styles from the time of the Buddha to the death of Christ(few will be past that) in ancient India. Most of these people are upper class people.

Most of the art are coming from three successors of Maurya's .

Nice collection of Pictures as usual. Thanks for sharing it. :)


To which monument do these pictures belong to? They look like the combination of native Indian style with some other form of art style... especially the lady in the second last picture.

Those are [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Begram_ivories"]Begram ivories[/ame] found in Afghanistan. These were late compared to the other art works. Dated to the Kushan period 1st-4th AD.(I think 4th is too late for those)

They are said to be imported from India proper. This is because the artistic style, clothing, etc looks like it belongs from there.




These ivories were exported to as far as the Roman empire. The Yakshi above was found in Pompeii.
