Stand under the roof of the Jogyesa Buddhist Temple in Seoul, and this amazing feast for the eyes is what greets your eyes when you glance upward.

Jean, This is really a wonderful image. Just such intricacy and design. I'll bet it was a wonderful experience just looking up and seeing the entire ceiling. Excellent capture. Makes me want to go back to Japan and some of the temples I visited before "digital". #6577682

Thanks, Debbie. I've been to Japan several times too and wish I had had digital for all of them! #6577777

The patterns are dizzying. And your composition is superb. I try to imagine the people who so carefully produced an amazing ceiling such as this. #6683915

Jean B. Hall October 30, 2008

Thank you very much, Mitch, for your thoughtful comment. It would be interesting to know how many hours this took -- and if it was all one person or many doing the painting. #6683967
