The book seeks to correlate the art growth of the state with its socio-political history; to bring out the relevant impacts, movements and epicenters. Against the evolving art-matrix of the region, the book lays out the vista and mannerisms of temple arts, under five sections dealing with history, socio-cultural status, forms, canons and cults.
The art developments from the early historic to the later medieval times are woven into a unified scheme, illustrated with charts, drawings and photographs, covering sculptural art, bronzes and murals as well as the basic manifestation of the structural architecture of the region.
