Ailsa’s theme this week is ‘details’.  Here’s her link

Sometimes to truly appreciate something, you need to get in really close!

This beautiful intricate and exquisite craftsmanship can be found at the temple of Banteay Srei, Cambodia.  (About 20km north of Angkor)

When I first saw Banteay Srei, I was delighted with the pinkness of it; pink sandstone.  But it was only as I walked closer that I truly appreciated the depth and detail of the extraordinary carvings covering every conceivable space.
