RYALI

Normally the image of the principal deity adorning the garbha griha casts spells on the beholders by its size, shape, sculpture, source and sanctity. Singly or severally. Indeed, it is customary to bestow special attention on the designing of the archamurthi, and it depends mainly upon the patron's religious inclinations, of course, making provisions to the local traditions. Tradition and sculptural science have elaborate accounts dealing with the making of images. As the Presiding deity blesses the adorers and fulfills their desires. the donors too shape their aspirations in strict accordance with the Agamic injunctions. Elaborate rituals and auspicious occasions are chosen both for making and installation of the idols. The idols that emerge to receiving all kinds of prayer services are of several types- some of them are designed in reclining posture, many are standing, and many more are sitting. And their facial expressions and gestures too are not of the same kind - some of the images have fearful facial expressions.
