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

The Khajuraho temples are luxuriantly decorated with elaborately carved sculptures. Whilst Khajuraho temples are famous for their "Kamasutra" sculptures, sexual themes are covering less than 10% of the temples walls art. In addition, most "Kamasutra" images are in balance with the non- sex images. The images are covering numerous details 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.
