TEMPLES IN TEZPUR DISTRICT

In the delineation of vegetable life the artist was in the height of his form. Combined with a considerable amount of faithful representation and integrity there is an amount of luxuriance of decoration and of picturesque arrangement. As floral
ornamentation could be employed for any decorative purpose and any vacant space could be filled up with such devices, naturally they became varied in form and numerous in numbers.

Of the floral designs, the lotus was by far the greatest favourite, and it was carv in various forms, in bud, in a half-open state, and in full-blown flowers. In Deo Parbat there is a beautiful representation of a
cluster of lotuses in full bloom andappears to be issuing from a pond. Another illustration from the same place exhibits a row of busts with hands holding lotuses; their patra-kundalas were also designed like full-blown lotuses.
