- Wood carvings: All works of art are expressed through different media and wood carving being a decorative art is one among them. The antiquity of wood carving has a hoary past. Being a perishable material, specimens of wood carvings have not survived. From the existing monuments it is clear that the wood was widely used in the temple architecture and sculpture. During the festivals for preparing the vahanas wood was used in large numbers and since the temple cars are the most important of them, the artisans paid great attention to embellish them with their skill. Rare examples of iconographic aspects are found in wood, which have not been met with either in stone or in metal. Some of the wood carvings on display here are the ones dismantled from the temple cars from Chengalpattu, Thanjavur and Ramanathapuram districts.
