Goddess Art of India —
In the sacred sex culture of early India, the Womb of the Goddess was viewed as the origin of creation.
Goddess images exposing the womb were thus seen as good omens — signs of blessing & protection of the Goddess.
For this reason, lajia gauris frequently decorated temples in parts of India where sacred sex practice flourished.
Her pose and presence in places of worship are strikingly similar to those of the
that appear on medieval churches in Britain.
