A multimedia display conceived by Adam Hardy was created for 'India: the Art of the Temple', an exhibition of Indian art from the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum , held in Shanghai (4 August and 15 November 2010): It was identified that the element missing from the exhibition was the temple building itself, the context in which the sculpture displayed in the exhibition was originally placed. The requirement was for a presentation that would not be a typical, didactic Museum gallery AV display, but a creative piece to stand alongside the works in the gallery to represent the temple building. The display was funded by the World Collections Programme.
