The present book dwells upon the stone sculptures and terracotta of the Sunga period for this purpose. This study also helps us expand our understanding of the contemporary literature and excavated objects, because, it provides the visual counterparts to the literary terms and, the lost shapes and functional contexts to the excavated objects. The description in this book is visually supported by the relevant line drawings and photographs.
