On the Parapet!

While walking along the wall yesterday, I saw a pair of pet parrots on the parapet 😂😂😂 No lie! 😄🐦🐦

When Calls the Wall

It’s a Tough Life!

😨😨😨 POOR EGG!!!

No Parabolic

😂😂😂😂 Looked it up. . . Parabolic means of or relating to a parabola (a symmetrical open plane curve formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to its side. The path of a projectile under the influence of gravity ideally follows a curve of this shape).

Not sure how ‘littering’ turned into parabolic, but there we have it! 😜😜

Sanjusangendo

This is part of the #Sanjusangendo temple. These are replicas of the deity Kannon. Kannon has 1000 arms, so each statue has 42 arms in rows of 25 (to cover the 25 planes). Altogether it means it represents the 10000 arms. They each also have several heads. Supposedly they have 10 heads with which to see human suffering and 10 times that many arms with which to eliminate human suffering. They are protected by the statutes of the warriors (most of which are deities from the Hindu faith–i.e. Braham is a guardian of the Kannon here, but the God of Creation in Hindu). There are hundreds of these and they date back to the 1200s.
