Varanasi Ramabrahmam

Sculpture

Sculpture is
Poetry on stone

Divinity in the form
Of the Lord

Art consisting of
intricate carvings

Imposing, representing
The faith of the followers

Reflects the spiritual
Vision of the devotee

Ridicules the vanity and hypocricy
of the atheist when he garlands the
Statue of his beloved rationalist leader
And anti-rituals compaigner cum irreligious philosopher

Sculpture is the history on rock
Taste of ruler of that times
Craft of the sculptors and
of course
also the plight of the citizens then

Deprived of well-being and welfare;
For most of the tax payers' money is spent
On structures and ornamenting them with
Figures made of rock. reflecting the
rock-like heart of the ruler

But sculptures are
Poetry on stone
Whatever might be the
Social situation when they were carved
