    EDITOR'S PREFACEBUDDHIST AND HINDU MONUMENTS OF EASTERN INDIA AND BANGLADESH

    The American Committee for South Asian Art is pleased to publish this section of its

    photographic archive. This project was made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the

    Humanities; The Inter Documentation Company, Leiden; The Ohio State University, College of the Arts;

    and The Ohio State University Office of Research. Deepest gratitude is expressed to each of these

    sources of support.

    My deepest thanks go to Janice Leoshko, who first served as Archivist for this project, and to

    Janice Glowski, who completed the work. Without the hard work and care shown by these individuals,

    this project would not have reached fruition. Thanks are also due to John C. Huntington, who compiled

    and drew the map that accompanies this Archive.

    Deep appreciation is also due to the major contributors of photographs in the archive, who are, in

    alphabetical order: Frederick M. Asher (A), John C. Huntington and Susan L. Huntington (H), and Janice

    Leoshko (L). Initials in parentheses indicate the designation for these individuals used in the

    identification of the photo source in the captions. Other individuals who contributed photographs include

    Pattaratorn Chirapravati, Parween Hasan, and Claudine Picron. Photographs contributed by these

    individuals were taken with the kind permission of the Archaeological Survey of India, the

    Archaeological Department of Bangladesh, Department of Ancient History of Patna University.

    Thanks are also due to the many institutions and collectors around the world who contributed

    photographs to the project and to the institutions who allowed photography at them. Institutional sources

    of photographs include the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and the American Institute of Indian

    Studies, and the following museums: the Ashutosh Museum at the University of Calcutta; Prince of

    Editor's Preface

    Captions are printed in boldface type, although lines that contain italicized words are not in bold

    due to the limitations of the computer program.. Diacritics were not used in order to facilitate computer

    searches,. For the most part, information about the subjects of the photographs follows museum labels.

    Information about provenance has not been independently verified except in a few cases.. Incorrect

    iconographic identifications have been changed only in obvious cases. When objects could not be

    measured, estimates of sizes were sometimes provided by individual photographers.. Conversions for

    estimates given in inches suggest greater precision than intended by the original estimators.

    Photographs are organized in the following sequences: For India: By state, alphabetically; within

    states by districts alphabetically; within districts, by sites alphabetically,. For Bangladesh: By districts

    alphabetically; within districts by sites alphabetically.. In some cases, alphabetical order was abandoned

    to accommodate a more sensible arrangement of a particular group of materials.. For, architectural

    materials, site views occur first, followed by individual monuments. Photographs of buildings and

    multisided works are arranged in a clockwise pattern. The order for sculptures is as follows: stone, then

    metal, then other material.. Within each medium, Buddhist materials occur first, then Hindu, and then

    other materials,. Buddhist objects are arranged as follows: Buddha figures (standing, then seated, each by

    mudra); Buddhas, crowned (standing, then seated, each by mudra); Bodhisattvas (standing, followed by

    seated); Female figures (standing, followed by seated); miscellaneous materials. Hindu materials are

    arranged in the following order: Siva and Saivite, Visnu and Vaisnavite, Surya, other male deities, and

    female deities.. Jain works of art occur after Hindu objects, followed by miscellaneous materials.
