Sculpture: Introduction

Five Study Topics for Figurative Sculpture:

1. Characteristics

2. Comparison with Other Styles

3. Style Name

4. Region

5. Period

There are only so many different styles of Himalayan sculptural art. Each of the major styles can be recognized by various characteristics. After identifying the principal characteristics and following a comparison with examples of the other known styles a style name should be easily arrived at. Knowing the style name then an approximate region and time period can be ascertained.
