Drawing inspiration from the mind,mythology and real-life experiences, the scuuptors of Durgi, Allagadda dn Tirupati have left behind an impression that cannot be ravaged even by time.. Theseimpressive sculptures on stone are mainly mythological in character. The focus of the theme was not merely on physical attrubutes, but on higher spiritual values of life. To give expression to such abstract conceptions, the sculp0tor consciously set for himself an idealm not based on the contemplation of the natural form, but upon meditation of the divine form, but upon meditation of the devine form, The distinctive power of suggestiveness is conspicuous in the sculpted forms.
