 The Ganga temples Talakad , Mysore

   The Ganga temples and basadis provide ample evidences to the growing maturity of their sculptural art. Even their inscriptions offer excellent sculptural pieces. The Atkur inscription depicts a scene of fight between a hound and a boar; the Doddahundi inscription depicts the scene of Nitimarga's death, and it has all the elements of dignity and pathos befitting the occasion.

The crowning achievement of the Ganga sculptural art is the statue of Gomatesvara at Vindhyagiri in Sravanabelagola. It is 57 feet high, hardly 10 foot less than the statue of Sphinx of Egypt. It was carved out of the mighty granite outcrop, at orders of the Ganga minister Chavundaraya, and the work was completed in 984 A. D. Entirely nude, this Indian colossus stands erect, facing the north, with square face, curly locks, elongated ear-lobes, broad shoulders and a small waist. The half-closed eyes indicate the saint's meditative mood, while his lips exuding a gentle smile seems to tell us how transient the affairs of the world are.

Gomata stands with an expression wonderfully calm, serene and divinely radiant, silently preaching to the sinning world the basic necessities of detachment, patience and love to attain happiness in this world and beyond. Venkoba Rao has described it as a crowning achievement of Indian art, and the noblest creation of man in praise of God. As Percy Brown has pointed out, through the surge and stress of over a thousand years, this solemn and impassive figure has defied elements, and the high finish of its workmanship still remains. Surely Blake had visions of such a monumental image when he wrote, " Reared his mighty stature; on Earth stood his feet. His naked limbs glittering upon the dark blue sky where the Eagles cry and the Vultures laugh".
