Self-sacrifice sculptures in Mamallai.
  • Hi,

    I had been to mamallai on sunday and noticed two things.

    1. Durga relief in the Varaha Mandapam had a devotee, removing his eye.
    2. Draupadi ratha has a devotee trying to sever his head.

    I was sure it was self-sacrifice, but could not place it in Navakandam. If anyone has notes or information on these sculptures, please do post them. I do have pictures of the same and will post them later.
  • Friends,

    Attached is the email from Dr.Jaybee and picture from the Draupadi Ratha depicting self-sacrifice/Navakantam. This picture was sent by Dr.Jaybee, I am yet to upload my pics online.

Howdy, Stranger!
