Nice art

The sun god in metal from Indonesia and this one from Karnataka have such distinctly different proportions. The facial and physiological difference is stark. Amazing !!

12 century statue......observe the upanayana thread..... Which caste he belongs to ??

There is no GOD. ALLAH ALMIGHTY is the only creator. And Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is his last messenger.

God the Sun is pratyaksh God

I wonder how it ended up in LA.
