Asiatique Staues

A perfect place for Statues

Our workshop celebrates and continues to propagate the proud and peerless heritage of Indian art

History of Indian art

Indian art originated about five thousand years ago, sometime during the peak of the Indus Valley civilisation. Largely influenced by a civilisation that came into existence in the 3rd millennium BCE, it blends the spiritual and the sensual, making it rather distinctive in form and appearance. However, as time passed, Indian art has undergone several transformations and has been influenced by various cultures, making it more diverse, yet more inclusive of its people as well. Unlike younger civilisations ‘art’ in India wasn’t introduced via canvas but rather through artistic expressions in solid rock. India’s sculptures, statues and carvings on temple walls, idols for worship and ancient carvings in the caves have not only stood the test of time, but retained their unparalleled beauty and invoked world wide appreciation and value. Antique sculptures from India throughout the 21st century have continued to command some of the highest prices in the art world.

Our workshops humble endeavour

The artisans and craftsman in our workshop carry with them the legacy , knowledge and ancient techniques and skills of their forefathers stretching back centuries. These unparalleled and peerless sculptures that celebrate the lost art of ancient India cannot be found anywhere else in the world. We pride ourselves on being able to meticulously reproduce works of lost age and period to almost the exact same marvel if not even surpassing their ancient beauty. Our team of craftsman spend months to conceive these replica figures and statues based on the same ancient techniques that are now lost from one of the oldest civilisations in the world. Whether it is the Greco-Roman influence of the Gandharan period (dating from the 2nd century to the 5th) or the Gupta period works that exemplified the “Golden period” of Indian art. The erotic and sensual period of Khajuraho or the most popular and sought after period of Pala sculptures that dated from the 9th to the 12th century, our sculptures are sought after the world over by the biggest galleries and showrooms as a rare example of an ancient art form. Priced very reasonably at only a fraction of what the original works sell at these pieces that are made from the same ancient stone and techniques that were done over 2000 years ago gives everyone a chance to own a piece of ancient history brought back to life.
