Of them, the
Kadalekalu Basava the minutest piece of a bull of the size of Bengal gram feasts
the eyes most and wrings veneration involuntarily. Verily the master sculptors,
aware of their potentialities and superhuman artistry tried to fill every pore
of the physical frames with such ineffable charm, that they left nothing to
improve upon. It is perhaps for this, they deliberately left a tiny blank space
for the posterity to add its mightily mite, if possible to excel or equal in the
work executed. Marvelous! This challenge seems a challenge non- pariel to
eternity; for no structure emerged so far to throw up a counter challenge.
Another awe-inspiring piece that embodies inexhastible charm is the ceiling
panel, adorning the main hall. It is a 19 inch square block of a superb gallery
of Indian iconography, displaying marvellous conception and unsurpassed
execution that beckons million looks. the Kalyanamandapa, Suvarnamandapa and
Balimandapa are marvellous later additions, but done well.
