Re: The Ancient, Erotic Temples of Khajuraho

For the artists models to hold that pose long enough to do a stone carving was a feat of endurance far greater than completing a marathon ! Interesting blog showing that history can be both entertaining and meaningful.

Thanks for commenting and glad that you enjoyed the post! Yes, imagine posing for a stone carving! I hadn't thought of it like that but was amazed by the quality and detail of the work. I find history really amazing and understanding about the history and meaning behind things like ancient temples and historical architecture makes the visit much more interesting for me.

There's something weirdly wonderful about these outsize sculptures, like this one, and Paul Bunyan, and...it may not meet the standards of high art, but it certainly represents important emotions!

Walleye is the best tasting pan (fried) fish I've ever had. Not hard to make. Lightly breaded, salt and pepper, and fried in butter or canola oil. Largemouth bass are almost as good.

I love these types of sculptures, how fun! What I want to know Ottoman, is where is the photo of you in front of the sculpture? Am I the only adult who gets a goofy photo taken? Here's mine in front of the Worlds Largest Lobster .

Thanks for your feedback gentlemen. DrFumblefinger...I agree that walleye (aka pickerel) are probably the best pan fried fish I have ever had. To anyone who has never tried this fish, treat yourself by cooking some up yourself or try it at a restaurant. PHeymont and TravelRob, I'm glad that you also enjoy these types of sculptures. You said it well Paul...there is something "weirdly wonderful" about them. In terms of your question Rob, the reasons I'm not in any of the pictures is...
