Photograph of a large sculptured slab with figure of Brahma, at Dharwar taken by Henry Cousens in the 1880s. The text accompanying this series of prints reads, "4 large massive slabs bearing sculptures of Siva (2 slabs), Brahma and Vishnu on Sesha. In 1885 they were found lying in the garden of Mr Fletcher's house. On enquiries being made in February 1893, it was found they had been built into the verandah of the house then in the occupancy of Mr J. Campbell, Agent, Southern Mahratta Railway. The slabs are supposed to have been brought from Badami some 25 years ago by Mr William Frere, formerly District Judge of Dharwar, who then occupied the house." The photographs show the slabs before they were incorporated into Mr Campbell's bungalow.
