10 headed Raavan’a symmetry

Yesterday I gavea talk on Raamaayanam oka ithihaasam at IISc. A good number of students attended. It was very satisfying to talk to the group. They heard with rapt attentionWhen I projected Bapu’s coveer picture of my book Raama Kaandam i noticed that there is one head of Raavan’a on his one neck and 4 heads on one side of it and 5 on the other side. The unsymmetry bothered me. It did not seem to have bothered any artist so far
Since yesterday I was thinking how to draw 10 heads symmetrically
5 heads facing us and 5 heads facing backwards can be drawn symmetrically ; 2 heads on either side of the central head on both sides– facing and back wards
Brahma’s heads are one facing us and 3 other in the other 3 directions!. That gave me the idea
Had he 10 heads or 10 voices/
I believe he was as loud ( raavams) as if he had 10 voices
ka va na sarma
