Saiva Art in Odisha

Bhagabat Tripathy (Author)

While much has been written about the temple architecture of Odisha in general there have been until now few studies which focus on the art of any single sect of Brahmanical religion. Yet such studies are great importance not only in contributing to an understanding of stylistic development, But for th proper assessment of the iconographical and architectural features of a major branch of Brahmanical religious structures.

The art of Saiva, a dominant section of Hindu religion is the focus of the present book. In assessing the art of Saiva, the author traces its formal antecedents discussing the Saiva art in Pan Indian context and the features of the Odishan art in particular. It has highlighted the originality of the Saiva art of Odisha, which is a buffer state between north and south. He has also put forth the iconographic injunctions of different Silpa Texts and compared them with the extant Art forms in Odisha proper and some of the artifacts in its adjoining areas. The whole documentation has been done in a scientific and lucid manner.
