Stone Faces VI

This image is part of the set "Stone Faces".


I shot a few of the statues while at Pura Samuan Tiga temple in Ubud, Bali. This was the royal temple of the Udayana Warmadewa dynasty (a Balinese King who ruled in the 10th century).


There has been a temple here for at least 1,000 years, but everything has been completely rebuilt in 1917 after the temple, along with most of the rest of the island was leveled by an earthquake.
