Khajuraho: Shiva & Parvati


Frozen Memories

Shiva & Parvati Shiva & Parvati

The two main characters in this one act play are (I think) Shiva and Parvati, the deity parents of Lord Ganesh. The entire scene, including the ladies on the ends, are filled with imagery which I cannot decipher. Imagery is a language of it’s own and needs as much understanding as does learning another language. What do the flute players represent? Who is the little person near the left of the center panel? Why are there 6 female figures and only one male? Did all the ancient women really have large breasts? So many questions run through my head. It would take a lifetime of study to understand half of what I see on these amazing walls.
