Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder

Or something like that. I, personally, was quite impressed with a good many of the Budda-like carvings and the many, intricately carved "rocks" at the Temples we saw [and we saw a lot!].

The more odd looking, the better, in my opinion. Saw a great deal of what would likely be deemed "politically incorrect" in the Western part of the world.

Thankfully the left-wing kooks haven't infiltrated Bali and other parts of the East. Yet. [Give it time. If it is art that is insulting to anyone with a right-leaning slant, it is all good. Insulting to anyone leaning left? Bad. Very bad.]

Think you could get away with this in the States? Highly unlikely! Someone would be screaming, "That's racist!" and the ACLU would be filing a lawsuit against the store proprietor faster than you can pop a bag of popcorn in the microwave.

Still have more to share...


  1. Some of those carvings look similar to carvings in South and Central Americaa.

  2. One of the continents we've not yet traveled to, Findalis. Probably will wait until we are home in the States to venture to South America. Just too far of a journey from SA.
