Sculptures from the Harappan, Mauryan, Satvahana, Sunga and Kushan Periods
The photo-exhibition titled ‘Kēśa-vinyās’ highlights a kaleidoscope on coiffures in Indian art beginning from the Harappan to medieval period. Changes adopted in hair-styles during ancient times are interesting to look upon as men and women both arranged their hair in a stylised manner. Considering the wide span of this period, this exhibition presents some of the most popular and exclusive hair-styles based on literary reference and archaeological records.
This exhibition has been divided into three parts. The first part highlights exhibits from Harappan to Kushan periods.
