Wow, amazing new stuff, Dale. The put a lot of effort into creative beauty... But where the hell did they get all those monk-saria collections -- did they raid every budo in the nation? ;-)Mason
That's a good question, and before I went there I thought they might have raided every single budo in Korea. As it turns out, most of them are from Nepal. But again, it wasn't too clear why they would have so many sari from a foreign country, let alone so many sari.
Yeah. and say, any explanation for the Jeju-do Dol-harubang statues as stairway-guardians of the pagoda-tower? a reason or mere kitsch...? are they on all four sides, or only the front?Mason
I believe they are completely ornamental. There's a lot about this temple that is strictly ornamental, and the Dol-harubang are a good example of that.
