chauri-bearer from Didarganj (Bihar), and (4) the stone elephant from Dhauli
(Orissa).
    Artistically these figures do not appear to belong to the same tradition as
the animal capitals. They were probably carved by local craftsmen and not by
the special craftsmen who were responsible for the animal capitals.
                          DIDARGANJ YAKSHI
  The Didarganj Yakshi or Chauri Bearer is widely viewed by
  archaeologists as one of the finest and most precious artefacts of ancient
  Indian sculptural art. The statue"s nose was damaged during a travelling
  exhibition, The Festival of India, en route to Smithsonian Institution and
  the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., USA.
