sculptors whose artistry enjoys a long lease of life normally strive to
producing beauty in its myriad forms, whether on stone, wood or metal. The
viewers indeed turn oblivious of the environs and time, due to drinking in
beauty with their eyes. Beauty is a powerful opiate, none can be immune from its
powerful looks. It is an immutable universal truth. Accepted by all, and
rejected by none. At all times.
archamurtis receiving soulful worship are sculptured, keeping this in view.
Certain amount of extra care is taken to see the product stun the viewers at a
mere single sight. It raises to hands in prayer instinctively and leaves
everlasting indelible impressions. The temple builders adorn every inch of the
place of worship with figure of matchless beauty. Would the principal deities
plead for exemption'? Hence the darsan of graceful icons in every temple. The
permeating beauty sends thrills and bends heads unconsciously. The Belur
Chennakesavaswamy temple or Somanathpur shrine can be singled our for the point
in question. The icons of jain mandirs with their dazzle and polish make the
viewers spell-bound. They are a class in themselves. All places of worship
throughout the world are enshrining images of perfect and complete beauty
divine. Hence eternal attraction.
