In the previous post, we had seen the top row …many friends, even regular visitors to the Tanjore temple confessed that they have missed that row. So we rub it in a bit more, by featuring the bottom row as well. ( Thanks again to Satheesh for his excellent observation, use of props!! and photography)
Lets see if you can spot them first.
Hmm, let me make this easier for you all
So, lets take a closer look at these beautiful Vyalaas, aren’t they Gorgeous.
The corners of these already miniature Vyalaas are even more spectacular. They have their own emerging rider similar to their bigger cousins on the top row. For good measure they have thrown an even smaller sculpture on top!
The ball pen cover provides us with an idea of scale.
To top all this, we also see a splendid miniature of Shiva as Gajasamharamurhty - Yaaniuri porthiya murthy.
So next time you visit the big temple, don’t just stop in amazement at its massiveness, take time to appreciate the smaller and subtle beauties as well.
