Photographer's Note

Angkor Thom - the temple of Bayon
Climbing over tumbled stones I climbed to the second tier of Bayon.It was from here that one gets the sense of the magnitude of these faces. Everywhere you looked - in every direction, at every possible angle, it seemed - was this huge, peaceful grin, its eyes closed as if in a state of meditation.
I had to take the snap with the sun behind my back to get the blue sky. One may notice the aeroplane just in front of the lips of this huge face, just to understand the magnitude.
