Photographer's Note

Maybe surprising to see something like this filed under Austria. It's not an import - the picture was taken in a garden of a Lower Austrian village.

A sculptor from Styria has specialized in creating Buddhist and Asian-style decorations for gardens...the people use them because they like them or because out of a strong sympathy for the traditions. Some may even be Buddhists, since you can be everything else and then a Buddhist on top.

From a photographer's point of view: When taking a picture of a statue I try to treat it as a portrait shot and to pronounce the personality of the lines and the expression (that there is no danger of someone blinking is an added bonus ;))
