Religious Idols

The need to express his creativity has led to mankind producing art over a range of media. One of the most popular media has been stones and rocks that are carved and chiseled to give shape to our ideas. Many archaeological expeditions have unearthed sculptures of different kinds which depict the social and cultural norms of the community back then. These give us an insight into their dressing habits, their artistic skills, the tools they used and how developed they were. The material usually is local to the particular area of sandstone, limestone, etc. Most excavations have revealed that statues were primarily created for purposes of worship. These were carved into exaggerated humanoid shapes to signify a higher living being who controlled the universe and life in general. Gradually this art progressed to honor war heroes and men of standing who made a significant contribution to society.
