A giant sculpture in Kerala of the mythical bird Jatayu symbolises the protection of women

In the epic Ramayana, the mythical bird Jatayu witnessed Sita being kidnapped by the demon king Ravana. When Jatayu tried to stop Ravana, the demon king used Chandrahasa, a weapon he got from the gods, to chop off one of its wings. It is believed that the bird fell on a rock and was alive to narrate the story to Lord Rama who later gave moksha to the dying bird.
