Bhitargaon: Art and Architecture of Humanism

Title:Bhitargaon: Art and Architecture of Humanism
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj
Enumeration:Vol. 22 Issue no. 2; March 1969, p. 2-23
Abstract:The Bhitargaon brick temple was a product of the socio-economic, cultural, and political environment of the Gupta period. The article notes the architectural features of the temple, themes of the plaques, and the rationale behind the terracottas depicting Vishnu, Shiva-Parvati, Ganesha and Karttikeya, and the human and animal worlds. The style reflects a synthesis of the Greco-Roman-Gandharan influence and the integral tradition of modelling.
