Vishnu clasps a gold, multi-armed goddess who straddles his lap in a lusty embrace. Despite gilt garments, they kiss, erotically entangle, bound to the wheel of sensual bliss. Voyeuristic visitors glance, consult museum brochures, discreetly move on. Inspired lovers look and learn, seek a quiet corner, feel themselves blaze.
