Lecture: Piety and devotion – 16th-century murals in the Virabhadra Temple in Lepakshi, India

Members of the KVVAK are invited to a most interesting seminar - organized by IIAS and the Rijksmuseum - about 16th century murals in the Virabhadra Temple in Lekpashi, India. During this seminar professor Anna L. Dallapiccola will explore these awe-inspiring murals in one of the finest Vijayanagara period temples, one of a few who have not suffered disfiguring additions. The murals are particarily notable as all other evidences of the Vijayanagara painting in Southern India have disappeared or detoriated. With their specializations in Indian art and iconography it promises to be an exciting seminar.
