Temple Terracotta Decoration: Interaction Between Monumental and Vernacular Traditions in Bengal

Title:Temple Terracotta Decoration: Interaction Between Monumental and Vernacular Traditions in Bengal
Author:Michell, George
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 34 Issue no. 4, p. 11-20
Abstract:A sharp break in the tradition of monumental architecture in Bengal coincided with the Muslim conquest of the 13th-14th century. By the end of the 16th century, a uniquely Bengali style of temple architecture and sculpture established itself. Cultural contacts of Bengal with Orissa helped preserve earlier forms.
