The Terracotta Art of India

Title:The Terracotta Art of India
Author:Sankalia, H.D. Dhavalikar, M.K.
Enumeration:Vol. 23 Issue no. 1; December 1969, p. 33-54 + 1 unnumbered leaf between p. 32-33
Abstract:The article traces the technical advancement of terracotta art through the pre-Harappan, Harappan, post-Harappan, early historical, Mauryan, Sunga, Satavahana, Kushana, Gandhara, Gupta, post-Gupta, and medieval periods. Specific examples from each of these phases are illustrated and described to show the thematic range of the terracottas; although there is a heavy concentration on religious subjects, secular themes such as animals, toys, and scenes of daily life are also frequently met with.
