Title: Papanatha Temple. Interior pillars
Author(s): Frederic, Louis
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Deccan-- Chalukya Dynasty-- Pattadakal;architecture;stone sculpture;book scan
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: These are heavy and as if carved in the rock. They still closely resemble those of the caves with the exaggerated development of their brackets and decoration. There is one novelty, the graceful figure which now leans against the shaft on one side, showing that, if the Calukyan architects were somewhat lacking in inspiration from the point of view of construction, they had already a long experience of sculpture.
