The Theme: Rocks & Stones
Couldn't resist uploading this reclining Buddha images from archives. Shots taken in beautiful Sri Lanka
This sacret place shows some of the the most beautiful Buddha images I have seen in Sri Lanka at Gal Viharaarea . Four images of Buddha of different sizes are carved out of a huge rock cliff about 56 yards long and falls away gradually at each end. Nearly 15 ft. of rock has been cut away to form the three large images and the cave. The beauty of the images and their lovely natural setting have long attracted the admiration of visitors. The famous Catholic monk Thomas Merton fell into a state of exaltation when he came here. The modern name Gal Vihara means the Rock Temple while the name given in the Culavamsa is The Northern Temple (Uttara Vihara).

Huge sculpture! V3 certainly shows the scale, but V1 is my preference, Isabel.

A wonderful set, Isabel, and most interesting. When I opened V.1, the first thing I saw was a swan's head with its beak nestled in its wing Smile Carol

Vs 1 and 2 are beautiful close ups, and it's great to see the carving in context in V3, with a figure to show the enormity of it.
