DMPQ- Write a short note about Amravati school of art.

. The Amravati school of Art evolved during Satavahna period. This school of art developed at Amravati, on the banks of the Krishna River in modern Andhra Pradesh. It is the site for the largest Buddhist stupa of South India. The stupendous stupa could not withstand the ravages of time and its ruins are preserved in the London Museum. This school of art had great influence on art in Sri Lanka and South-East Asia as products from here were carried to those countries.

Characteristic features of Amravati school are:

  • In the initial periods, Lord Buddha is depicted in the form of `Swastika` mark. This has been carved out on the cushioned seat over a throne that is situated under the Bodhi tree.
  • At a later stage the Amaravati School depicted Buddha in the human form.
  • The figures of Amaravati have slim blithe features and are represented in difficult poses and curves. However the scenes are over-crowded
  • Use of White marble and The images of Lord Buddha from Alluru, Dharma Chakra from Lingaraja Palli, Bodhisattvas are some of the finest instances of the Amaravati School of art and sculpture.
