Pratibandha (पादबन्ध) refers to a variety of adhiṣṭhāna, which is a pedestal or base of a structure, and a very important component in the art of construction (śilpa). Pratibandha is mentioned in the Kāśyapaśilpa as having a further 10 sub-varieties. It is also mentioned in the Pādmasaṃhita.
The following are the 10 sub-varieties of pratibandha according to the Kāśyapaśilpa:
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.
Pratibandha (प्रतिबन्ध).—A type of adhiṣṭhāna (‘pedestal’);—Mayamata (verse 14.36) and Kāśyapaśilpa (verses 6.30-32) mention pratibandha-adhiṣṭhāna. Mayamata states “when the prativājana takes four parts and prati takes three parts then the base is called pratibandha, all the other members being same as in the kapotabandha-adhiṣṭhāna. That means to say the prati moulding which used to be the thinnest moulding in all the plinths becomes prominent and thick in this plinth. Kāśyapaśilpa (verse 6.26) states that pratibandha should possess vṛttakumuda.
However, Īśānaśivagurudeva Paddati gives a different picture of the nature of pratibandha-adhiṣṭhāna. According to this, “the upper part of the prati should be broad (pratimukha). On this, makara, mṛga, vyāla and gaja should be carved”. No mention of kapota is seen in Īśānaśivagurudeva for the pratibandha-adhiṣṭhāna .Source: Shodhganga: Temples of Salem region Up to 1336 AD
Vastushastra (वास्तुशास्त्र, vāstuśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science (shastra) of architecture (vastu), dealing with topics such architecture, sculpture, town-building, fort building and various other constructions. Vastu also deals with the philosophy of the architectural relation with the cosmic universe.
