Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book history of early stone sculpture at Mathura, ca. 150 BCE-100 ce presents the table of contents, list of figures, preface, acknowledgement, list of abbreviations and an introduction. The book examines architectural fragments, bas reliefs, and figural images from the Mathura region spanning a time of nearly two hundred years from ca. 150 BCE to 100 CE. The lack of intact architectural monuments from Mathura may explain why it has been eclipsed by sites such as Sanchi, Bharhut, Bodhgaya, and Amaravati in scholarship on Indian art of these early phases. The sculptures included in the book are all from the region of Mathura. Study of the earliest known art of Mathura shows that the region was one of the most multisectarian and prominent centers of artistic production in South Asia from the mid-second century BCE through the first century CE.

Keywords: architectural fragments; Mathura; stone sculpture
