The Magnificent Stone Artefacts of the Odisha State Museum

Orissa has been the seat of rich ancient civilizations and some of the archaeological finds have been displayed at the State Museum, Bhubaneshwar. Museums in the cities of India are unsung and uncelebrated - but host an amazing range of artefacts. This museum delighted me not only with collection but also with the way in which the art has been presented. Following are a few photos of the museum display.   IMG_2658 IMG_2659 IMG_2660 IMG_2662 IMG_2663 IMG_2664 IMG_2665 IMG_2666 IMG_2667 IMG_2668 IMG_2669     IMG_2670 IMG_2671 IMG_2672 IMG_2673 IMG_2674 IMG_2675 IMG_2676 IMG_2677 IMG_2679 IMG_2680 IMG_2681 IMG_2683 IMG_2684 IMG_2685 IMG_2686 IMG_2688 IMG_2689 IMG_2690 IMG_2691 IMG_2692 IMG_2693 IMG_2694 IMG_2695 IMG_2696 IMG_2697 IMG_2698 IMG_2699 Ancient Indian stone sculpture   Odisha is among the poorest states in India - going by financial measures. Yet by other measures such as history, culture and warmth of its people, it is nowhere at the bottom of the ladder. An unsung cultural great state! jm March 2013
