Monochrome Monday: Khajuraho: Scorpion & Lady

Frozen Memories

Lady & Scorpion Lady & Scorpion

There is a scorpion on the left leg of this lady statue. It was something I did not notice until it was pointed out to me by one of the guards on duty at the monument. He went on to explain that her sari was also open and indicated the scorpion and the women had sex.  Readings I found after visiting the monument said there is a belief that the woman was removing her sari to rid herself of the scorpion. And the scorpion is a metaphor for poisonous lust. If it was the former, I wonder who the offspring would most resemble.

Independent of either interpretation is that this is a beautiful piece of ancient art.
