Face Unveiled


As promised in this earlier posting the face of the Chathur Muka Statue has finally been unveiled. Although the painting was completed sometime back, we were compelled to wait to see the magnificent face of the statue. And here it is:






Grrrrr........






And to remember just how magnificent the original is, here is the companion identical statue situated just off the Girivalam Roadway near the Rajarajeshwari Temple. The statue also has a large tirtham (tank) attached. As of this time the statue has not been painted -- and lets hope it stays that way!

Yes let's hope the other ancient lion isn't also turned into a comic book character.

Well at least the other way is a bit distant from the girivalam path - and 'out of sight - out of mind!' One hopes!
