LEPAKSHI

An incarnation of Dharma. This legend is depicted on the walls in colour through many scences. The sequence is well maintained and each frame makes such visual appeal that the viewers react to the expressions of the pictures drawn. In the Ardhamantap, specially reserved for Sivalilas, Lord Siva here reveals himself in a variety of forms, such as Netana murthy, Andhakasuradwamsa, Dhakshinamurthy in bright jewels, Chandikesanugrahamurty with Kapalamala, Bhikshatana murthy in Darukavana. Thus they depict his complete life; and appear realistic. And as eyes roll from corner to corner, viewers experience inexplicable feeling. Though the colour is faded, due to Kaladevatha's rough handling to some extent, the details are extremely appealing. The artists' brush presented exact life-like pictures that even modern camera admits its inefficiency before them. It is an artists' Paradise, and research yields much for several theses. Painters, Sculptors, archeologists find them most inspiring, and in fact they give a fresh lease of life to the ardent Kalaradhakas. A miss not wonder land for everyone.
