Angkorian gods Buddha in Tree Buddha Profile in Tree
Angkor Wat Bridge Gods - Conrad Olivier - Photographer Buddha in Tree Buddha Profile in Tree
Gods holding Naga at Angkor (Color) 'Eternal Embrace' photographed in Ayutthaya, Thailand.  This Buddha sculpture is located within the grounds of Wat Mahathat which was built during the 1370's and 1380's. It was repaired, restored, and rebuilt several times until the Burmese destruction in 1767. It has been a ruin ever since. A dismembered head from one of its Buddha statues was found encased in the roots of a tree.  The textures of the tree and stone appear nearly the same in this photograph making it difficult to discern which is tree and which part is stone.  I believe the textures to be a composite of lichens and other surface patinas both organic and atmospheric (ie. exhaust, chalks, powders applied over time).
