Stones telling about ancient warriors

We are living in a world were scientific inventions are powerful enough to demolish the whole world in minutes,  even we have spaceships that can go to another planet but how it was in the ancient times were there was no such weapons and transport invented,  how they would have fought and how they would have traveled?  Answers to these questions lies in the stones as sculptures.  Here is some of the samples from the hoysala temples.
