Have a look at the above sculpture.
The sculpture work is quite interesting.
An important teaching in Hinduism is…What we see is not real.
It’s called MAYA (Illusion)
If you look at the sculpture from the left side, you can see the bull raising its head including the horns.
If you just move to the right you start noticing the elephant raising its trunk.
It’s said to be sculpted in the ancient Cholas Dynasty style (907 and 1215 AD)
Mostly misinterpreted as a fight between two animals.
In ancient Indian art, it’s common to find these kinds of combined creatures.
Maybe modern computers or software trying to copy these ideas?
My guess is it’s nothing but the artist’s way of illustrating optical illusion.
Optical Illusion in our daily life?
“There is an optical illusion about every person we meet” Ralph Waldo Emerson
