TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

The entire collection contains only a single specimen carved in the round, a lion, presumably on an elephant. The conventional representation of the lion shows that the inhabitants of the Assam valley were not, familiar with the king of beasts.*11

We need not be apologetic for giving this long quotation. Prof. R. D. Banerji's description of the remains brings in full measure the artistic talents of the Assamese craftsmen which can be easily compared with those of craftsmen of Central and 'Eastern India. It also gives an idea of aesthetic achievement, which the people of Assam attained during this period. The stone sculptures and rock
carvings that have been discovered here not only indicate the geographical limit of the circulation of art specimens and the spread of Hindu culture into the remotest comer of the province, but also fully reveal how closely Assam' followed the general art tradition and motifs of Northern India.

*11. A.R.A.S.I., 1924-25, pp.100 to 102.
