Love Sculptures at Khajuraho
Khajuraho, the small town in Madhya Pradesh, is home to an amazing variety of sculptures. The most remarkable of them, however, is a collection of erotic sculptures remarkable for both their artistic and sensuous qualities.
There are many interpretations regarding the presence of such sculptures here. There are many who believe that such sculptures are manifestations of sexual postures described in the classical Indian text ‘Kama Sutra’ which is a dissertation on human love by sage Vatsyayana.
The sculptures of Khajuraho are far away from being purely physical or material. The physical union between man and woman is portrayed as the human counterpart of the cosmic function of creation.
