I decided to post a picture of an intricate carving I found at the Hoysala temple at Halebid, Karnataka.
This sculpture is of a battle formation called ‘Chakravyuh’ which is described in the Mahabaratha. It’s a circular/ spiral formation that is nearly impossible to attack and win.
I was amazed at the effort the sculptor must have made to carve this correctly and carefully at the first go. Remember there was no room for mistakes as this was carved directly into the stone wall!
