POTD: Art Walk

Art Walk

The expansive portico on this Buddhist temple was lined with one relief sculptured mural after another. My Chinese artist friend who I stayed with in Nanjing was asked to design one of the temple murals. Even though he would have been well paid he declined the offer because they made the decision not allow the artists to sign their work.

Turning around from the view shown in yesterday’s POTD you see this–part of a new Buddhist temple. It was a very interesting mix of old design motifs in new architectural form.
