AMU Faculty Member Presents Paper At International Conference

Aligarh, April 16 (TNA) Dr Mohammad Nazrul Bari, Associate Professor, Centre of Advanced Study, Department of History, Aligarh Muslim University, attended the 8th International Conference of the Society of South Asian Archaeology (SOSSA), as a resource person and presented his research article titled "Representation of Deer in Pre-modern Art and Sculpture of India”.

The conference was organised recently at Patna in association with Bihar Museum, Patna and the Ministry of Art, Culture and Youth Affairs, Government of Bihar. Dr Bari also co-chaired a technical session entitled “The recent researches in Archaeology”. Bari described ancient Indian art as spiritual or divine art where deer is represented with religious themes in both the religious and non-religious texts including art and sculpture.

He said, that since 1206 AD onwards, the rulers of Turkish origin and later even Afghans didn’t have much time to patronise painting as we have seen in the case of Mughal, especially with Akbar up to Shah Jahan. He also observed that the migration of painters from Mughal capitals to regional kingdoms helped in the growth of Kangda, Rajasthani, and Pahadi paintings from the 17th century with the mixing of religious and non-religious approaches in painting.
