Spirits

“But I think the spirit of man is a good adversary”
Tennessee Williams 1911-1983

This is a Yaksha, a spirit statue made to look threatening so he
can guard sacred sites in Thailand.

  6. He doesn't look threatening at all in my point of view. The colours are so lively and full of hapiness instead. Hope it's the same with you again! :)
