Kutirai

Madurai

On the country-side of Madurai, just coming back from a marriage, I asked the driver to stop as I suddenly saw one of my favourite statues of Tamil Nadu, indeed this horse or kutirai inside a small temple with his blue guard as from heaven, protecting this holy place. Often you see red terracotta horses nearby villages to protect them from evil but here the horse was inside the temple.

They were restoring the statue, freshly painted, I had to crop out all the bamboo scaffolding around it. A quick shot, taxi was waiting, I used my handy small camera.
You can see what's there on top of the horse ?
