Abstract:This article gives an overview of sculpture in India. It starts with the Asoka pillars of Mauryan times. The Kushana period of Mathura art is discussed and there are some very fine examples from this period in the Birla Collections. Though the Birla Collections have no Gupta sculpture of the Gupta period proper apart from some fine Gupta terracottas, the mediaeval schools of sculpture in Rajasthan, Central India, and the Pala school of eastern India are well represented. Sculpture in south India, though it has a long history from early times, is usually associated with the excellent sculptural art of the Pallava and Chola dynasties. Sculptures from the 2nd century BCE to the 19th century CE are reproduced in this article with extended captions.
