7. FINE ARTS

Max Muller, a German Indologist has once declared that If I am asked which nation had been Advanced in the Ancient World in respect of Education and Culture then I would say it was “IndiaAncient India’s Fine Art and Performing Arts attest to this fact. This find Expression in Music, Musical Instruments, Dancing, Paintings and several other Art Forms.

Music had a Divine Character in India and in recognition of that the Indian Goddess of Learning, Saraswati is always shown holding a Musical Instrument, namely, the Veena. Likewise, Krishna is associated with ˜Banshi’, that is, the Flute – a Musical Instrument, which traveled throughout the world from India. Indian Devotional Songs and Reciting influenced Religious Recitations in several Eastern Countries, where the style was adopted by Buddhists Monks. The India developed several Types of Musical Instruments and Forms of Dancing, with delicate body movements and grace.

Paintings have remained the oldest art form as found in several Cave Paintings across the globe. In India also, in places like Bhimbetka, a UNESCO declared World Heritage Site, Pre-Historic Cave Paintings have been discovered. In relatively recent times, Paintings and Carvings on rock had significantly developed, and many such Rock Carvings have been found dating to the Period of the Emperor Ashoka. Indian influences may be seen in Paintings at Bamiyan, Afghanistan, and in Miran and Domko in Central Asia. Sometimes, such Paintings depict not only Buddha but Hindu deities such as Shiva, Ganesha and Surya.
