Engraving of fragments from the ruins of Badoli by Edward Francis Finden (1791-1857) after Patrick Young Waugh (1788-1829). Plate 4 of James Tod's 'Annals and antiquities of Rajast'han or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India' published in London in 1832. Badoli, situated south west of Kota in Rajasthan, is the site of three fine examples of 10th century Hindu temple architecture. The fragment depicts Shiva and his consort Parvati. Shiva is shown holding a drum in his right hand, the beat of which summons up creation.
