Some Motifs from Ancient Indian Jewellery

Title:Some Motifs from Ancient Indian Jewellery
Enumeration:Vol. 9 Issue no. 1; December 1955, p. 77-78
Abstract:The motifs are based on magic, superstition, religious ritual, and mythology. Their symbolism is derived from non-Aryan, pre-vedic, and archaic origins. The designs were influenced by agricultural techniques and familiarity with foliage and flowers, and developed into fine works of art, as evident in the earliest medallions and reliefs at Bharhut, Sanchi, Bhaja, Kondane, Ajanta, and Amaravati. The designs have not substantially changed in India over the last 2000 years.
