Hi Benny,
Beautiful shot of this statue, the upwards point of view gives hint to its very impressive size. The wall paintings are really a beautiful way to frame the statue. I love how the sculptor has made the support into the little figure. I wonder would this classify as a caryatid? Very interesting either way, thanks for this piece of the world I never kne about.

Smile To Noel_Byrne: caryatid

Thanks for your comment on this oldie. It was one of the first pictures I posted here and it still is one of my favourites.

The small figure is indeed a support (caryatid), but its inclusion wasn't intentional. It was added during work in progress for extra support (according to my guidebook information).
