Description: This statue which is situated on the end wall, shows Siva emerging from the linga to prove to Brahma and Visnu (on the right, at the back, in the form of a boar) that he is superior to them. Here we see Brahma, with three of his faces visible, flying to the top of the linga to see where this ends. Brahma stands on the left, Visnu, on the right, in the same pose.
