This period marked an imaginative and impressive step forward in Indian sculpting. Although some would consider the pillars of Ashoka as architecture, owing to their freestanding nature and elaborately carved animal capitals most of the art historians consider them as the example of sculpture. Coomaraswami (Art critic) distinguishes between court art and a more popular art during the Mauryan period. Court art is represented by the pillars and their capitals. Popular art is represented by the works of the local sculptors like Chauri Bearer or Yakshini (Didarganj, Patna, Bihar) and Lion Capital (Sarnath, UP).
