Gupta Style



The very essence of the style dates back to the Gupta era with the characteristic hairstyle made of curls of hair, the unisha at the top (protrusion on the top of the head resembling a bun) and the elongated ears. (see the Buddha of Sarnath).

The style remains very classic and realistic, a heritage of the Greeks, the shapes are harmonious, well proportioned; the search for perfection, for balance is essential.

The aim of the artists is to convey an impression of deep peace linked to a state of inner realization: liberation from the manifested world, serenity, detachment.

The face is marked by the delicacy of the features, which are few in number: superciliary arches just underlined, very straight bridge of the nose, slightly protruding elongated eyes, closed eyelids indicating internalization.

The ears with stretched lobes (sign of an ancient wearing of earrings) mark the old status of the Buddha: before renouncing the palace life and his destiny as a prince, Siddhartha Gautama wore the attributes < / strong> nobles and wealth including earrings.

Very nice patina

« I, who often did not know what to give as a gift, here is the 3rd statue of Ganesh Art India that I offer in a year, this time a bust of a Bastar woman with an "inaccessible gaze". With joy in many facets: seeing the delighted expression of the person to whom I am giving the gift, allowing a gifted but unknown Indian artist to earn a little better a living and living a simple and perfect transaction with Ganesh Art India. Bertrand Bellaize is a reliable and careful person and his statues are even more beautiful in real life than in photos. » (Eric D.)
 
« The statue that I have just received is magnificent. A presence emanates from it which rejoices the heart. I would also like to compliment the Ganesh Art team for the extreme care they take in packing their statues. I find this love of a job well done very touching. » (Frederic B)
 
« I have just acquired a real masterpiece of tribal art "The pregnant woman with her baby". The statue moved me, you can feel the hand of the artist, the emotion that emanates from this woman.

Bertrand Bellaize is a passionate gallery owner who gave me lots of advice and explanations. I can only recommend! » (Martine M)
