    ONLINE Film & Talk - GLIMPSES OF CULTURE. Profusion of Life (Amravati and Nagarjunakonda). Screening followed by discussion with art historian, filmmaker & photographer Benoy K. Behl. Prod. Doordarshan. The fertile valley of the Krishna River was the cradle of civilization in the Eastern Deccan. This area became one of the greatest centres of Buddhism and over 140 early Buddhist sites have been listed in this region. Sculpted scenes such as the 'Birth of the Buddha' would transport the viewer, far from the everyday concerns of the mundane world. Besides the Buddha figures in the reliefs, a number of free-standing Buddhas have been found at Amravati and other sites of the Andhra region. They date from the 3rd century onwards. These are quite different from the Buddha figures which were being made at Mathura and Gandhara and show an independent artistic conception. These were to be the models for the Buddhas of South-East Asia.
