Works of art in bone and antler are conspicuous by their absence in Indian Archaeology. In alien countries- especially in Europe they are abundant in home sites of Upper Palaeolithic times. The present monograph deals with varied works of art in bone and antler that hail from Natshal existing in the vicinity of Deulpota near Diamond Harbour in 24 Parganas district, where Upper Palaeolithic stone tools and stone tools of Middle Stone Age have been found. Excellent works of art in the said mediums betraying engraving, carving, painting and clay modeling nicely dealt with in the volume claim to date from the prehistoric times and seem to represent the earliest examples of Indian traditions. Printed Pages: 152.
