Summary: Literary and epigraphical references have been used to correlate the material provided by sculpture. An attempt has also been made to discuss the iconographic data available in texts. This, in short, is a brief analysis of one of the less known areas in Hindu iconography.

Description: In the studies on Indian art and iconography the personification of weapons and other cognizances held by deities has remained an inadequately explored field. This brief monograph attempts to trace the beginnings of the motif of Ayudhapurusas, their regional and chronological ramifications and the evolution of cults in honour of some of them.
