Cholas who ruled Southern India and parts of South East Asia between 8-13th Century AD are renowned for their Temple architecture , Bronze and stone sculptures adorning the temples both inside and outside on its walls. Unfortunately most of these sculptures have been smuggled out
of India and are now currently in many museums across the world. Attempts have been made
by the Indian Government to retrieve them back with little success. Through her paintings Sathya
is making an attempt to provide a tribute to the Cholas, their sculptors and at the same time
raise awareness amongst the people on the importance of maintaining and appreciating our inheritance and culture. .
