Ten images by Justin Smith

I was really inspired by the more recent posting of Burmese images, and drew inspiration from those.

  1. Nice! I particularly like the third from the bottom, with the Rakshasha and the wolves (or so they seem to me). Burmese imagery is something I haven’t seen a lot of – a lot of shared motifs with Tibetan stuff that I’ve seen, but less decorated and more muted in tone.

    Anyway, very evocative set!
