by Vasundhara Filliozat. Although the epic Ramayana is a part in a genre litteraire of Indian Mythology, it is considered as ‘Itihasa,’ history. The Ramayana is a most popular story and often scenes from the epic are profusely represented in the visual arts. By and large, the birth of Rama, his killing demons, his marriage with Sita, Vali and Sugriva fight, the final fight with Ravaṇa to liberate his bien aimée Sita are a few scenes represented. In the Lokeshvara temple at Pattadakal rare scenes have been personified in sculpture on temple façades and on pillars. To cite a few: At the request of dying Vali, Rama accepts to protect Angada, the son of Vali. This fact is shown by the accolade of Rama and Angada, Dundubhi the demon provoking Vali, Supariava forbidding Ravaṇa from proceeding to his capital etc.
