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

The walls of the Khajuraho temples are highly decorated with beautifully carved sculptures. Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for their sex sculptures, sexual themes make up less than 10% of the temples sculpture. Further, most erotic scene panels are in proportional balance with the non- sexual images. The topics of wall sculpture art cover numerous facets of human life and values are 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.
