A beautiful sun temple in Konark – eastern India – is an ancient masterpiece featuring beautiful, intricate and sometimes erotic carvings.
This temple is filled with so much symbolism and meaning. Seven horses for the days of the week. Each wheel symbolizing the hours in a day.
Ancient temples all around the world fascinate me. The building of them – sometimes a complete mystery – the meanings behind the shapes and images used.
Temples are one of the most beautiful forms of ancient art.
According to the description, some of the carvings are even more erotic, the documentary makers choosing to take a little safer route with the carvings they show.
