Muliplier effect

Halibedu 115

Lovely depiction of Mahabharata is brought to life through the exquisite carvings. The one on the left is Arjuna – identified with the parrot on the chariot. The charging horses and the multitude of arrows give it a lovely feeling.

Templenet mentions Art historian James Fergusson writings of Halebidu

The Hoysaleswara temple may be probably considered as one of the most marvellous exhibitions of human labor to be found even the patient east. The mode in which the eastern face is broken up by the larger masses, so as to give height and play of light and shade, is a better way of accomplishing what the Gothc artists attempted by their projections.

This however is surpassed by the western front, where the variety of outline and arrangement and subordination of the various facets in which it is disposed, must be considered as a masterpiece of design in its class.
