Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu: A detailed view of the high part of the beautifully decorated ancient construction where is (at least actually) located the Sculpture Museum, with the top of the entrance in foreground. The rose colored representation of a deity on the top of the entrance harmonizes with the dome of the same color in the background. At the same time, this sculpture stands out against the grey of the top of the entrance itself, that is decorated with other sculptures and bas reliefs, in particular of the typical, stylized, sacred cows. This is the enlargement of part of the scan of a slide taken in July-August, 1996.
