The Temples of Khajuraho, India. The Sex Sculpture, Photo
The walls of all Khajuraho temples are luxuriantly decorated with intricately carved sculptures.
Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for the sex sculptures,
sexual themes occupy less than 10% of the temples art.
most erotic scene panels are in balance with the non-
sexual scene panels.
The images are covering numerous
sides of human life and values
considered important 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.
