4 India ~ Yazhis & Ganas, rare murtis, etc. ~
Since Gods' images were rigidly prescribed, sculptors of India took advantage of their greater lee-way
in depicting the divinities' side-kicks. Among the most charming are the devilish, quarrelsome
troops of Lord Shiva, the ganas; & the dragon-like 1/2 lion Vyalas [Yazhis].
Here are a few of each, plus some other curious images.
