Title: Somnathpur. Kesava Temple. Statue on outside, 12th-13th Centuries
Author(s): Frederic, Louis
Photographer: Arthur Llewellyn Basham
Keywords: Hoysala, South India, Mysore;architecture;stone sculpture;book scan
Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
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.
