Jaṅgama (जङ्गम) or Karmabimba refers to images that are closely linked to the main image but are subjected to other forms of worship or are moveable. They are usually made out of metal. The karma bimba is linked to the mūla-beras. According to Ganapati Sthapati, “If the mūla-bera is fashioned standing then the karma-bimba should also be in standing posture. If the mūla-bera is fashioned seated, then the karma-bimba should also be seated or standing. If the mūla-bera is in reclining posture, the karma-bimba may be standing or seated, but not reclining”.
Shilpashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, śilpaśāstra) represents the ancient Indian science (shastra) of creative arts (shilpa) such as sculpture, iconography and painting. Closely related to Vastushastra (architecture), they often share the same literature.
