Familiar Glances

Familiar Glances
“Nature is a temple in which living columns sometimes emit confused words.
Man approaches it through forests of symbols, which observe him with familiar glances.”
(Charles Baudelaire - French poet, 1821-1867)

This is a detail shot in the Gurudham temple complex which lies in ruins near Durgakund in Varanasi (Benaras).
Each side of the Paduka Bhavana has several ventilation holes (air vent) looking alike in a shape reminding the sumbol designed by Hergé in "Cigars of the Pharaoh", the fourth volume of The Adventures of Tintin.
Have a look to the other pictures of this file in order to understand what this temple is about and why there is an urgent need to raise awareness of this unique heritage masterpiece at risk...
