Terracottas of Bengal: With Special Reference to Nadia

Sankar Prosad Ghosh (Author)
Synopsis Since time immemorial Bengal has been the cultural representative of Nadia had been at one time, the culture of Bengal itself. The terracotta finds adorning our museums, temples and private collections testify that this expressive art once thrived in Nadia. Unfortunately, however, a subject reveals that these living witnesses have escaped the analytical eye of researchers, scholars and historians. The present study serves to fill this void in a remarkably intelligent and diligent manner. Through its intensive on-the-spot investigations of the terracottas of Nadia. It attempts to portray not only the history of art objects – their antiquity, materials used and thematic range – but also the history of society, culture and religion as pronounced by these mute spokesmen. The author has done well to make a survey of the existing literature on the subject which substantiates the fact that the terracottas of Nadia have been hitherto dealt with rather cursorily. However, through its investigative analysis of the art objects, the present work reconstructs the past. As a result, these ignored objects of art can now be read like on open book of history.
