Photograph of a sculptural slab of a dancing woman at Deo Baranark taken by Henry Baily Wade Garrick and reproduced as a lithograph in H.B.W. Garrick, Report of a tour through Behar, Central India, Peshawar, and Yusufzai 1881-82 (A.S.I. vol. XIX, Calcutta, 1885), pl. viii(b). There are seven temples in total at Deo Baranak dedicated to gods such as Surya, Vishnu and Shiva. These are all located on a raised platform alongside a monolith and a ritual tank. According to Garrick the oldest of these dates to the ninth or tenth century however it would appear that they were built a few centuries earlier than this. All of the temples are now in a poor state of preservation and pieces of sculpture can be found all over the site. This makes it difficult to assess where the piece shown here originally came from.
