Brisbane, Australia |
My mum took me to visit the beautiful Sri Selva Vinayakar Koyil, Ganesh Temple in Brisbane that she sometimes visits. It is under construction and being crafted by artisans in a South Indian Tamil style. The inside (where as a place of worship photos are not taken) is almost complete, and is ornate with colourfully painted mouldings and carvings that tell various religious stories. The outside carvings are now in the process of being completed to match.
I did a little painting inspired by the colours of the temple as a gift for my mum.
