Description

As part of a food tasting tour in Singapore, we visited Chinatown. Captured this image on the roof of one of the temples close by showing a Hindu deity. Hindu Images of the gods often have multiple arms, with each hand holding a symbolic object or making a certain Mudra (gesture) that have a specific meaning. For example an open palm facing the viewer indicates protection and favor and tells the worshiper to have no fear. This is perhaps a welcoming exhibit for the tourists who come by.
