India are more sculptors but they also made clay vessels for their food. They would carve great pieces from the side of a mountain that they would tunnel through. The things that would be in there that are completely carved into the sides of the walls in their tunnels are elephants, their gods, people in everyday life settings and these would also be painted very brightly and elaborately. Then in the very back of the chamber would be the buddha they placed for worship and the tunnels that were carved in the mountains would be a temple. They also carved out/ found large brick sized rocks that they would build up to a form of a pyramid in religious values as well. They essentially created religious art.
