Photographer's Note

Triumph of good over evil. The most-present figure at the entrance of almost all Orissan temples.

It is known as 'Gaja-Simha'- the motif of a lion seated with 3 legs on the back of an elephant. The other front pow is held in front of the chest, ready tho strike the crouching elephant.

this pic is from the Bhattarika temple, Orissa.
