Abstract:This article gives an overview of the political history of the Vakataka rulers of Vidarbha as well as discusses their sculptural art in relation to Gupta art. The main sites of art associated with the Vakatakas are Ajanta and Ghatotkacha, although in the 1970s a few more sites were discovered in the Vidarbha area. The sculptural art of the Vakatakas had its own stylistic features with regard to modelling of the human figure and certain other characteristics. Nevertheless, distinctively evident are mannerisms and sculptural conventions of Gupta art.
