Visual Culture addresses to aesthetic desire and various other kinds of sensory delight. Pleasure and values are closely related because high artistic principles are generally assigned to those artifacts that provide us with enduring gratification, that is a succession of pleasurable experience. They may be so complex and demanding that we have to invest considerable time and mental effort before any pleasure is gained. The process of visual culture involves many levels of intellectual integration. It comes under the course of creation even though many creative minds complain that creation is hard work or even agony. Mythology and Art are inseparable, mythology narrates the stories of the subjects and Art follows the right dimension of presentation and representation. Here the elements of Art play one of the major roles to find out the correct form of the subject from the nature. The stories of the Myth create emotions; perhaps emotions also need a virtual reality references to increase their range and subtlety for future use. Art, in short, may be nature’s own virtual reality. Human brain excels at visual imagery. Our brain evolved this ability to create an internal mental picture or model of the world. The use of metaphor in language as well as in visual art is well known. Indian temple structure is full of sculptures like the celestial nymph, ripe mangoes, lotus, the wish-fulfilling tree are a metaphor of the mysterious creative process, feminine principles, fertility and fecundity of nature. So there are multiple layers of metaphor and meaning in the form of Visual Culture.
