Vijayawada: Given the fact that there are no temples built to worship the creator God Brahma, because of a curse, it was surprising to find a rare sculpture of Brahma and goddess Saraswathi carved on one panel while levelling the ground inside the Anandeswara temple, at Pedakonduru, a riverside village, in Duggirala Mandal, Guntur district, on Monday. 

Noted archaeologist and chief executive of the state Cultural Centre of Vijayawada and Amaravathi Dr Emani Sivanagi Reddy said that, based on the information provided by the villagers he rushed to the spot accompanied by Andhra Arts Academy secretary Golla Narayana Rao, secretary Dr Venna Vallabharao and Subhakar Medasani of Amaravathi Buddha Vihara. 

 

They closely examined the sculpture and said that the sculpture, carved on red sandstone, consists of Brahma seated in Sukhasana and depicted with four heads and four hands. Rosary, kamandalu, Sruk and Sruva are held in three hands and the fourth is seen embracing the goddess. Dr Sivanagi Reddy sensitised the villagers on the historical significance of the sculpture.
