In the movements of their mind, as in the vibrations of their daily life, and in the mystical flights of their spirit no less, the Indians looked upon the human body, as they looked upon the material world, with curiosity, with longing, with fear, with regret. At no time were they indifferent to it. The human body remained on abiding concern, with this recognition, however, that man’s being is not limited to his physicality. In all the conflicting expressions of his humanity there runs a connecting truth: nothing that is natural and human need be despised, much less negated, but everything that is natural and human is to be transcended for in self-transcendence is man fulfilled.
Indian art, like the systems of Indian philosophy, was rooted in that truth, and so were Indian music and dance. Together they evolved as related expressions of man’s humanity, symbolized by a tree inverted, whose leaves and branches and fruits are spread upon earth, and its roots in the cosmic space. The art of making images in bronze reached its most brilliant expression in the Chola period; and the Chola period the tenth century in particular, was without question among the most creative periods of Indian art. The Chola bronzes express more than the preceding Pallava rock-cut sculpture did, the fullness of the human body and emotions. The virility and strength of the male figure, and the sensuousness and grace of the female acquired in them very nearly a life-like quality. One can see in them the expression of a vast range of human emotions: ecstacy, simple joy, tenderness, tranquility, authority, and coyness; and because nothing in life was negated, even the aggressive, the violent and the grotesque. All are energy movement, dance.
