Capter 4 is devoted to adornment on Orissan images from the earliest times to the Bhauma period. Beginning with chapter 5 and the widespread production of images throughout the state, a more systematic approach is introduced. The complete adornment for select individual male and female figures is a described. Chapter 5 is devoted to the Bhauma period, chapter 6 to the Somavamsi period and chapter 7 to the Ganga period and later. Chapters 8 and 9 are devoted to the adornment peculiarities of individual male and female deities respectively. 1200 drawings of the ornaments and 101 excellent photographs given at the end of the book are particularly delightful. An exhaustive glossary on ornaments enhances the usefulness of the book.
