I've got my eyes on you

The detailing that goes into putting together temple gopurams is easily worthy of praise - at least as much as what any intricate installation deserves. Irrespective of whether each figure is made by hand or made using standard moulds, there's just something about the way it all just sits up there looking at you. Like its guarding all the goodness that the temple holds, from the evil around it. I'm just going to call it art. These piercing eyes sit among the many figures that create the tallest Hindu Temple in Srilanka - the Muthumariamman Thevasthanam Temple at Matale.
