Documenting the first major exhibition to focus on the complex architectural, religious and historical contexts of north Indian medieval temple sculpture, this scholarly catalogue presents illustrations and detailed individual analyses of 74 elaborately carved stone images of Hindu deities and human and animal figures, arranged to reflect the interrelated functions of the works within the six-part structure of the traditional temple. Six essays discuss such topics as the role of the north Indian temple as a model of cosmic order, the iconography and stylistic evolution of temple sculpture, and the history of religious and political patronage of temple building from the 8th to the 13th century.
