Holy Christ!


That's what i thought when i walked into this church in Trichy. There was something off about the look on Baby Jesus's facial expression. Do you detect a smirk there, devoid of any happiness or grace? Or maybe its just me. And check out the awesome mosaic on the wall up above. I love the symmetry and the simple yet intricate design. The fact that this very exact mosaic is now a common sight in many churches in India, was a real damper - nevertheless, i appreciate the many hours that may have gone into setting each stone in place. If only they took as much care in these figures! Puthur, Trichy.
