Kalpatharu Research Academy is dedicated to the cause of preservation of ancient heritage of India; it has encouraged Research in the fields of Agama, Veda, Tantra, Jyoutisha, Mantra-Sastra, Vastu, Yoga, Silpa, Ayurveda etc.

The Academy has plans of undertaking intensive Research in the field of Veda and Vedanga, and intends publishing “Bharatiya-Samskriti-Sarvasva-Kosha” an encyclopaedic work in several volumes dealing with all aspects of Indian Tradition and Culture. It seeks to promote Education, Culture, Science, Art and learning in all its branches. The approach will be broad-based and multidisciplinary.

An extensive, comprehensive and specialist reference library has been built up to assist the Research Workers in the Indological disciplines.

Our ambition is to develop as a National Centre for higher learning in Veda, Vedanga and Shastras and facilitate the propagation of unique Sanskrit and Vedic Texts in the National and International arena.

Introduction

This is the fourth part of Devata-Rupa-Mala which has been designed to be of help to the artistes and the craftsmen, engaged in the preparation of icons for worship in temples and at homes. The icons illustrated here by drawings and photographs are also excellent specimens of our sculpture. The reproductions of photographs from South Kanara District of Karnataka, here are from the late Dr. P. Gururaj Bhatt (cf. his definitive volume on studies in Tuluva History and Culture, 1975). He was my good friend, and he very kindly provided me with numerous photographs. My indebtedness to him has already been acknowledged in the previous part (Pan II, page. 101). The discussions I had with him on several occasions brought out the distinctive features of sculptural work in that area.

This volume deals with the iconic representations of Siva in his sportive forms (lila-murti) like Nataraja, Dakshinamurti, Vaivahikamurti-, Devyardha (ardha-nari) and so on.

I am grateful to Sri Daivajna K.N. Somayaji for providing me this opportunity, to the Jagadguru of Sringeri who is the chief patron of Kalpatharu Research Academy, and to Sri V.R. Gowrishankar who is the Chairman of the Academy, I am also indebted to my friends Sri Venkatesh Babu and Sri Nagendra of Omkar Offset Printers, for their courtesy and co-operation while this work was in the press.
