Impressions: Alexander Schwabe
The roof of this temple symbolizes not only how rich, beautiful, complex and overwhelming India’s art and religion is, but the whole country in general. Hundreds of well designed, handmade figures in hundreds of stories told on the diverse levels of the roof represent the long history, fantasy, religious ideas and traditions of the Indian people. It also indicates how different from our western way of thinking India’s interpretation of reality might be. Plurality/pluralism seems to be the essence of being.
