Intricate- detailed and full of life with a story to tell.

And this is just what this piece did for me. I shot this picture at a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand on a trip last summer. I was immediately enthralled by this intricate and ornate decoration of a statue outside the temple. I could just see the love, labor, and vision put into this masterpiece that lies at the bottom of a statue, under a ledge. While it is beautiful alone it was made even more rich by what is not pictured: the details in the ornate roofs and statues, the tiny pebbles lining the endless stairs to the top of the hill, the shining blue sky- all these things worked together to make a beautiful scene. But the foundational beauty lies in the intricate details.
