I've been seeing so many ancient temples in India on the blogs and now this. The artistic ability of these folks is mind-blowing. And they didn't even have computers!

What beautiful carvings. I cannot imagine how long it must have taken to carve the right piece to fit into the final product. Imagine how many... or how little he had to go through to get the final art?

These artefacts are so amazingly special. The history is displayed in this port folio.

Wow. those are fascinating, enigmatic, ornate carvings! Amazing! I love the composition of the first photo best, but my favorite carving is the middle one in the last photo.
