By following the earlier discussion based on the sculptures of Khajuraho temple, here I would like to represent a significant sculpture named “Ardhanarishvara” followed by the Hindu mythological Vedic literature.
Agreeing with my previous discussion regarding the Indian erotic sculptures, we have acknowledged such spiritual thought as the highest label of Hindu philosophy, which was hard for common people to recognize.
In this chapter of discussion, I am about to cultivate the Indian sculpture art profoundly to find out the inner thought of erotic sculptures which are highly controversial in every era of Indian as well as the human civilization. Those sculptures already have taken the highest label..........
There were a lot of ancient books of sculpture wrote in the Sanskrit language presently our of the world, only remains few reference books came from those ancient scriptures. In those books, the guidelines or descriptions in regards to the techniques of sculpture were not confine with such rules that are only applicable for the religious sculpture, rather it allowed all sort of sculpture; religious or non-religious.
I found this Sanskrit word during the time of reading that book regarding human figure. It is, - “Gomukhakaram”; what a wonderful metaphor of human figure! The meaning of that Sanskrit term is “Cow-faced”. The human body would be similar to the shape of the face of cow.
By adopting my past article named “The doctrine of Indian sculpture”, here I would like to disclose the inner thought of this great oriental platform of art that includes with metaphorical concepts regarding the human body.
Our surrounded nature is the primary laboratory of the experiment of artistry and from the primitive era, we have been taking the advantage of this greatest laboratory produced by nature. It teaches us everything about the form, proportion, luminance, emotional expression, color concept; moreover, it inspires to create something with the elements that sprayed over nature.
Before starting the discussion, we need to have the knowledge about the Indian spiritualism and related myths that had been governing in that primordial era, before the birth of christ. I’ll discuss simultaneously the Indian sculpture and related spiritual myth to understand those ancient sculpture widely.
