Ta Prohm was one of my favourite temples while I was in Cambodia, you might have noticed from all the photos. Maybe because it was the first temple that we saw while exploring the Angkor Temples, or maybe because I liked the fact that it had been partially destroyed by the jungle growing back up and around it. And parts of it were still being held together by the trees growing through this complex.
I noticed this carving on the wall while I was exploring the Temple, and was amazed at how much detail had gone into making this. Imagine how long that would have taken to make centuries ago when this was first carved.
The photo itself has a slight creamtone filter on it, giving it a more neutral feel from the harsh grey and soft green of the stone and moss. I feel it also accentuates the details of the carving a bit more.
