Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind (Statue)

When I saw this statue in the Angkor Wat Temple, I was awed by the contrast in colors.

While I am not a follower of the Buddha or the Hindu religion, I have full of reverence for them.

As I understand both these religions or cultures direct people to do good.DSC_0051

This photo turns out to be one of my photos which have the biggest number of “Clicks” on it.

Just wonder what readers’ state of mind is when they view the picture?

  1. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m taken by the red, orange, yellow colors but also the shape of the wheel above the statue’s head. It looks like a spiral moving both inwardly and outwardly – the spiritual journey.

  2. Michael this doesn’t seem to be Buddha for sure. It can be Vishnu or Brahma as both had more than two hands. I haven’t been to Cambodia but before Buddhism Hindu religion was popular based on certain information.
