Classical India provided a unique juxtaposition of art and life. One would readily see monasteries which extolled the values of asceticism and celibacy yet would display female sculptures that exuded sensuality. Such presentations are not hedonistic, but instead present the female form at its most divine and graceful. The tribhanga position was the epitome of this philosophy accentuating the curves and elegance of the sacred female.
