>IC APAD 040

Inside the Angkor Wat Temple’s gallery wall. As you can see, the hallway extends as far as the eye (or the lens) can see. The walls are carved with scenes from the Khmer version of the epic Ramayana. The carvings are in perfect detail and condition, as if it were carved only recently. Amazing. Truly a world wonder.

  1. >Absolutely a perfect sepia subject!I also love the shadow capture in this.

  2. >Really amazing how the condition could still be maintained! The aisle reminds me of carvings in an ancient Egypt tomb. Your subject related to Ramayana is a good match for my sepia. Ramayana is one of the stories performed with Wayang Golek. Best wishes :).
