Abstract This program deconstructs the politically charged monuments from post-Revolutionary Paris and the ornamental temple sculptures from 11th-century Khajuraho while contrasting the allegorical meanings ascribed by Western and Eastern cultures. The societal perception of women as reflected by the art traditions of 19th-century France and of central India during the Chandela period is also examined.
