Weekly Photo Challenge: Patterns (3)

In big contrast to my second submission on “Patterns” which was multi-colored, this image is rather plain but contains a lot of details.DSC_0219

The image was taken in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. All patterns on the wall were hand carved hundreds of years ago.  There are many repetitive details, ranging from flowers to people. Some of the carvings go quite deep into the stone, while others are more superficial.

The patterns cover the walls, the columns and the lintel. In fact, they are everywhere.

The carvings were exposed to the elements ( although lost in the jungle) but still standing after all these centuries.
