In Hinduism

Śilpaśāstra (iconography)

Vipralambhaśṛṅgāra (विप्रलम्भशृङ्गार) is depicted as a sculpture on the tenth pillar of the southern half of the maṇḍapa of the temple of Lokeśvara.—This is one of the best examples of vipralambhaśṛṅgāra-rasa “sentiment of love in separation” in this temple. A lovelorn lady is taken care of by her companions. In this decor a beautiful lady is lying on a stone slab. Her right leg is stretched straight, reposing on a cushion, while the left one is folded in an acute angle dividing the panel into two parts in such a way that two of her mates are grouped together in each portion. Her right hand is supporting her head which must be on cushion while she is touching her right breast with her left hand which has gone very tender due to the separation from her lover. It signifies her suffering from the pangs of love.
