Ancient Buddhas



This is a cool visual metaphor that can be experienced in the meditation caves in the ruins at Guge, Tibet. The erosion in the mountains inspires the 1000 buddhas in the monestary art.









See my post here http://truenomads.blogspot.com/2007/09/ancient-kingdom-of-guge.html for more details on that trip.

Caves are so cool....and your photo does a great job of showcasing just that!

I can see why the Buddha’s were easily inspired by the view. Nice shots.

That is a beautiful shot. You can definitely see many possibilities in the view beyond the cave, and most certainly Buddahs.

Best,
