Floral Masonry

One of my favorite mediums of art is Asian stonework – whether statues or the many scupltures woven into temples and palaces, I never fail to be impressed. 💕

Sprites at Play

I love fountains – to be honest I just love water-based scapes of any kind – rainy days, the ocean, the great lakes, . . . water soothes my spirit ❤

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.
