Hoysaleswara temple prt13

I’m not even half way with the slides from India; but I have the feeling that this should be the last India-from-slide-post. It starts to feel like work; and that’s not good πŸ™‚ . In this post the rest of The Hoysaleswara temple in Halebid; incredible sculptures. Prt 21 and 22 show quite well what insane details these craftsmen were capable of. Rock looking like cloth; almost surreal. And as the temple is dedicated to Shiva, there is of course a bull waiting in front of the entrance.
Thanks for the Likes and the comments; hope you enjoyed these India-posts.

    Amazing adventure

  2. You can upload the continuation later. πŸ™‚ There are certainly many who would like to see them with.
    When I look at all these beautiful handwork, I wonder how future humans will our time ‘ petition ‘ signs to the Art awaken for emotions. Will it arouse emotions in the same way as–oh, God, so beautiful, so much work and thought behind this petition sign.
    (petition sign is an example only )

    • Difficult question, Antonia. I think that in our time emotions in art are much more individual than in those days. Our huge, mass-projects are Olympic stadiums, museums, airports, etc.; More functional, rather than spiritual; and limited by budget. I don’t know what will remain and what future people will think of it.

    I say: (and I quote) “It starts to feel like work; and that’s not good” – I understand you, it’s a lot of work (I know). I would like to say thanks for sharing and it was a nice journey.

    Fantastic images, especially prt15.

    • I say: Thanks, my friend; I thought prt 15 would be your favorite. (the movement wasn’t intended in those days πŸ™‚ )
