Terracottas in the history of Indian sculpture: technique and evolution.

The grant allowed me to document terracotta sculptures in a number of museums and private collections, and to study the intervention of technique in the representation and production of sculptures and other terracotta artefacts in ancient India.

Terracottas of Bihar (600 BC to 1000 AD)

The grant was very useful in preparing my MA dissertation in this subject and increased my interest in it. I am now (2001) pursuing my PhD in the field of terracotta art. I have published articles on contemporary terracotta art of Mithila (Bihar) and taught related subjects to MA students.
