Borobudur by JoniGodoy Borobudur by JoniGodoy
Another illustration created for "Big Bang" Magazine.

Borobudur is a ninth century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument comprises six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues.
A main dome is located at the center of the top platform, and is surrounded by seventy-two Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa.

The monument is both a shrine to Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage.
Evidence suggests Borobudur was abandoned following the fourteenth century decline of Buddhist and Hindu kingdoms in Java, and the Javanese conversion to Islam.
It was rediscovered in 1814 by Sir Thomas Raffles, the British ruler of Java. Borobudur has since been preserved through several restorations. The largest restoration project was undertaken between 1975 and 1982 by the Indonesian government and UNESCO, following which the monument was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Borobudur is still used for pilgrimage, where once a year Buddhists in Indonesia celebrate Vesak at the monument, and Borobudur is Indonesia's single most visited tourist attraction.

I would like to see another adventure of Indiana Jones in this temple! Haha!

YES!!!

I'm not sure that I can completely explain why I love this, but in short... I have an Art History degree and Borobadur was/is my favorite monument I was exposed to, Ever. Being Buddhist certainly helps, as well. *grins*

I adore everything about this monument and I really like how you've captured it, here. Thank you taking the time to create this and sharing it on dA, as well. It now has a home in my rotating desktop backgrounds. Thank you! :aww:

AH! siempre sí le volví a poner el primer letrero. Lo que pasa es que me emocioné mucho y los versìculos bìblicos que le añadì resultaba "ni al caso".
Y aunque las Escrituras siempre son verdad de Dios para el alma, la intenciòn de ponerlos aquí terminaba siendo demasiado agresiva, Mejor pondrè textos bìblicos para otras cosas.
