world pictures Peninsular India: Kanchipuram: Vaikuntha Perumal Temple

Rasa, or the dark waters under the earth, is ruled by the naga Vasuki, whose daughter here asks Ananta the Infinite for a husband. Ananta, who is also the snake upon which Vishnu reclines in countless sculptures, signifies self-delusion, and here he sordidly stimulates the eroticism of the young naga. The figure at the lower left is Sanatkumara, who has come to learn about the vyuhas or forms of Bhagavan. (N6)
