The Temples of Khajuraho, India. The Sex Sculpture, Photo

The walls of all Khajuraho temples have a rich display of art carved sculptures. Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for their sexual sculptures, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples walls sculpture. Nay, most sexual images are in proportional balance with the non- sexual scene panels. The art themes cover numerous features of human life and values are major in Hindu pantheon. The images are arranged in a configuration to express central ideas of Hinduism. All three ideas from Āgamas are richly expressed in Khajuraho temples - Avyakta, Vyakta and Vyaktavyakta.
