Anna Maria Rossi and Fabio Rossi are presenting 'Sculpture from a Sacred Realm', a fascinating exhibition celebrating the splendour of Indian sculpture. The 24 works, dating from 2nd century B.C. to 13th century A.D, vividly reveal the central role religious sculpture played in Indian civilisation. India's three main faiths - Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism developed side by side, responding to the same influences and exchanging ideas and insights. This is evident in Indian art, where workshops provided sculpture as readily for a Hindu temple as for a Buddhist or Jain one, with resulting similarities of style across religious lines. While it is extremely rare for an individual artist to be identified, the productions of workshops can be recognised by regional and stylistic characteristics and the media employed. 'Sculpture from a Sacred Realm' will be held at 91C Jermyn Street, London SW1, and will be open to the public from Wednesday 22 November to Friday 22 December 1995.
