Ellora Buddhist Caves, Chaitya Hall, entranceway sculptures of amorous couples

Abstract

Across the top of the entrance to the Chaitya Hall is this series of small niches containing amorous couples in slightly different poses with their bodies bent as if in response to their partners. On either side of each couple is a small figure, perhaps a child. Repeating these figures across the length of the top of the entranceway offers images of fertility and good fortune to all who pass through.
