Depicting movement has always been a challenge for sculptors and painters. Even more challenging is making clear that what they show is dancing rather than some other sort of movement. Then, if the artist’s intentions aren’t known for certain, how do we viewers interpret what we see? Is it dancing, posing, fighting, gesticulating, or something else?

A distinguished landmark of San Francisco, the Old Temple is located on the corner of Webster and Filbert Streets in the Cow Hollow district. It was built in 1905 by Swami Trigunatitananda (Trigunatita) of the Ramakrishna Order of India. The swami wanted to build a Hindu temple that represented the influx of India’s great spiritual wisdom into the culture of the West and yet was universal in its approach. After it was built, he referred to it as: “The first Hindu temple in the whole Western world dedicated to the cause of humanity.”
