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

The walls of all Khajuraho temples are prodigally decorated with elaborately carved sculptures. Whereas temples of Khajuraho are illustrious for their erotic sculptures, sexual themes cover less than 10% of the temples art. Further, most sex scene panels are in proportional balance with the non- sexual scene panels. The wall arts cover numerous aspects of human life and values considered 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.
