There are lots of such sculptures in Indian temples. Tedious work to produce them.

Very long hair! I've seen a few women who have grown theirs that long. I wonder what that is supposed to be at her feet. It's difficult to tell, I imagine a monkey or an infant perhaps.

Janet said...

Interesting! Wonder what the symbolic meaning is? Small child holding onto long tresses! Hmmm!

Shannon said...

Beautiful bas relief. Is it on a temple?
