The Bhairava Cult and the Kāpālika Sect in the Hindu Pantheon is a
complicated and esoteric chapter. In the Indian context it has been observed that, the
Sculptural Art of the Bhairavas and Ekapāda Bhairava of Kārunda are unique of its kind.
For the first time the Author has discovered the unique iconographic affinity in between
Ekapāda Bhairava and Lord Jagannath which has been reflected as a comparative study.
Hence, the Author has strived his best to reflect the unknown iconography of Ekapāda
Bhairava of Kārunda and Lord Jagannath in Author’s second book ‘The Unknown
Iconography of India’
