Material Used :
Rock, Stones
Main Theme :
Characters from Hindu Mythology

Rock and stone were the most common subjects for the development of art, right from the Maurya time to Harshavardhana to the Mughals and the British. Gods formed the basis of sculpture all over India, including Haryana. Sculptures in Haryana were concentrated around central and northern parts and were basically religious in content.

Materials Used
Besides rock and stone, sandstone was widely used, be it green, buff, gray or black
However, the Mughals put a stop to carving idols and images out of rock as this was against the very basis of Islam. They went a step further, destroying temples and any such figure, which crossed their path.
