dc.abstract.en Indian narrative tradition is very rich in all kinds of stories showing the acts of gift-giving, a fact that reflects the importance of the idea of dāna in Indian culture. The gift-of-the-body tales constitute a very special issue, often connected with the concept of kingship. One of the best known among them is the legend of King Śibi. There are different variants of the tale to be found in jātakas, avadānas, in the Mahābhārata, etc. and it is quite frequently depicted in paintings or reliefs. An interesting example is provided by the Kapoteśvara Temple myth. The temple is located in Andhra Pradesh and can be dated back to the first centuries of CE. pl
