Gendered Narratives in Early Indian Art


A discourse of binaries, such as the male normative and female deviant, the ‘good’ wife as the ideal and all other categories of women as dangerous, deviant and socio- sexually problematic, underlies early formulations that depict engendering of gender roles in Indian history and art.
This presentation re-examines the above dichotomies in light of visual narratives built around the Rama katha or Ramayana as well as its antecedents in the early Buddhist and Jaina representations in the bas relief sculptures on railings and entrances of stupas and viharas, which came up over time from Bharhut to Deogarh.
Such gender roles, embodying perfomative images, visual, oral and dramatic, are significant in the manner in which through its representation notions of stridharma, (women’s idealized prescriptive behaviour), are juxtaposed with strisvabhava, (women’s perceived ‘essential’ nature).
The very same imagery also reveals contestations of the patriarchal ideal stated in Brahmanical textual tradition. Agency of women as well as coercive nature of patriarchal social and moral authority may be read through these visual narratives, concomitantly exploring its didactic and emotional impact.
