      Much before the great river valley civilisations took root in the flood
      plains of the Ganga and Yamuna, the Chalcolithic cultures had grown in the
      river valleys of the Central India and Deccan. These cultures of the Copper
      Age flourished primarily along the river valleys of the Narmada, the
      Chambal and Son and their tributaries. These Chalcolithic people were
      illiterate. There is no evidence of any written script. The only
      decipherable records of this civilisation are the pottery paintings on the
      sherds of broken earthen ware discovered at many of these ancient sites.
      These simple and elegant paintings open up an ethno-universe of surprising
      diversity and vibrance. They present a fascinating glimpse into those
      ancient tribal cultures.

      Dr. Datta, has carried out a fascinating study of these Chalcolithic
      pottery paintings. She has painstakingly compiled a compendium of the
      various motifs, designs of human and animal figures encountered in these
      paintings, and has analysed and classified them in detail. She discovered
      regional stylistic variations and unique creative expressions that
      characterised the paintings found in each river valley. The paintings of
      the Navdatoli sites are so elaborate and unique in stylistic content that
      they may well qualify as the first distinguishable school of painting in
      ancient India.

      This book is a fascinating voyage of discovery through the aeons of time.
      Through her study of the Chalcolithic paintings, Dr. Datta has opened up an
      entire ethno-universe of great beauty and primaeval splendour.

      1. Introduction
      2. Human Figures
      3. Animal Figures
      4. Symbols and Designs
      5. Regional Stylistic Variations
      6. Techniques and Traditions
      7. Cultural Study of the Chalcolithic Society

      Dr. Veena Datta did her Post Graduation in Fine Arts from the Rani
      Durgawati University, Jabalpur. Her current passion is creating exquisitely
      beautiful ceramic pottery on which she paints the Chalcolithic motifs and
      designs of the Copper age in India.
