Distinction in Indian Iconography

Figures 42-51:

Male figure belonging to a double-faced human capital at Pawaya. Annual Report (Gwalior) 1927/28, Pl. VI, a. Cf. the Gupta pillar at Eran. A human figure with an elaborate halo (substitute for the cakra?) stood also on a Gupta pillar at Sāñcī (Marshall-Foucher, ñchī III, Pl. 108b); the figure represented is in that case Vajrapāṇi.
