Elephant sculpture at the Konark Sun Temple (India)

Not sure if the human figure that the Decorated Elephant is holding is a Hindu deity.

It could be a war elephant and an enemy soldier.

The Konark Sun Temple is famous for the thousands of high-relief sculptures of Maithuna (sexual union in a ritual context).
