Survey of Crafts: Brass and Bell Metal

Title:Survey of Crafts: Brass and Bell Metal
Author:Dhamija, Jasleen
Enumeration:Vol. 20 Issue no. 1; December 1966, p. 23-25
Abstract:Most of the bronzes discovered in excavations from Bihar belong to the Maurya, Gupta, and Pala periods. The Gupta-period bronzes -- such as the small copper Sultanganj Buddha -- are some of the finest examples. The casting of images in the classical style is no longer practised, and the living metal craft today is the tribal casting done by the nomadic craftsmen known as "Malhores". The Institute for Industrial Design in Patna is attempting to organize these craftsmen and find a continuous market for their goods.
