Shades of Eroticism - in Temple Art Symbols and Manifestations of Indian Art, edited by Dr. Saryu Doshi,

Title:Shades of Eroticism - in Temple Art Symbols and Manifestations of Indian Art, edited by Dr. Saryu Doshi,

Abstract:Erotic sculpture on Indian temples appears as a paradox -- reflecting a contradiction between avowed cultural goals and the content of art. Erotic motifs appear not only on renowned temples such as those of Khajuraho, Konarak, and Bhubaneswar, but also temples of lesser-known sites. In fact, erotic sculpture was ubiquitous during the period that spanned from 900-1400 CE and continued to occur on temples and rathas (chariots) of southern India, Orissa, and Bengal.
