Description: This portrays Agni, the god of Fire and Lord of the South East. The baroque style of this statue shows a certain degree of stiffness. The unbridled fantasy which was the rule at Halebid and Belur gives place here to a more conventional approach. The decoration loses its finesse and becomes heavier and more regular.
