Parveen Sultana (Author)

To present a total view of the development of the elephant form in Indian art, with its different connotation, it has been brought here into discussion, how elephant has been depicted in Prehistoric art, in the art of Indus Valley, in Buddhist cave paintings, the manner and purpose of depiction of elephants that appear on the Palm leaves of Pala and Jain manuscripts, as also in Mughal and Rajasthani miniature paintings to make the chronological order complete.

The comparative analysis of form and composition, line and colour, technique and treatment fo the depiction of the animal (elephant) in each phase in its development in Indian art, have been tried to deal here with special care and minute observation, using appropriate literary references and ample supporting pictorial documents of actual specimens of different Schools and Centers of the country. This gives a clear idea of the symbol and character, philosophy and myth, religious associations and meaning of elephant’s representation in Indian Painting caring of the artistic values.
