CHOLA’S AND
BRONZE ART
The period of the imperial Cholas (c. 850 CE - 1250 CE) was an age of continuous
improvement and refinement of Dravidian art and architecture. They utilised their
prodigious wealth earned through their extensive conquests in building long-lasting
stone temples and exquisite bronze sculptures
The Chola period is also
remarkable for its sculptures
and bronzes.[19] Among the
existing specimens in the
various museums of the world
and in the temples of South
India, may be seen many fine
figures of Siva in various forms
accompanied by his
consort Parvati and the other
gods, demigods and
goddesses of the Saivaite
pantheon, Vishnu and his
consort Lakshmi, the
Nayanmars, other Saiva saints
and many more.
One of the most recognised
artwork in the world; the Chola
bronze statue involves demanding
handwork. Originally considered as
temple art, it is handled by artisans
with extraordinary care and
devotion. The Shilpa Shastra (texts
that prescribe standards for
traditional Indian
iconography/science of sculpture)
is still referred as the basic guide to
achieve perfect anatomical
proportions for the sculptures. In
India, the traditional artisans are
concentrated in and around the
Kumbakonam, district Tamil
Nadu.
• it was during the Chola period that
bronze casting reached a level of
unmatched excellence and masterful
artistry. During the Chola rule in South
India (between 9th and 13th century),
bronze sculpture excelled under royal
patronage. And the artworks got greatly
refined with clearly defined proportion.
• Chola bronzes are created using the lost
wax technique. In artistic terms it is known
as “Cire Perdue”. The process includes
kneading beeswax and kungilium (camphor)
with a little oil. This forms a malleable
substance from which the figure is sculpted
by the master artisan complete with minute
details
