Indonesia 2 - Gardians of the Rice Fields by 

These ancient statues stand near in the Lotus Gardens at the entrance of the Saraswati Pura (temple) in Ubud Bali. The temple is maintained by Ubud royalty and is occupied 24 hours a day by priests and village workings who supply some of the best Barong Masks and costumes to dance groups in Bali. A much-photographed temple I’ve tried to find more unusual aspects to display.

    This is gorgeous. You have made these seem to be watching over the rice fields and time. Very powerful and high impact visual piece of work. I would put it on the front page if I had the power. :o)

  • Thank you Bunny I also wish you had the power to post it front page myself. I’m so glad you’ve seen what I’ve tried to capture with this shot. Thanks again
