Sculpture

sleeping buddha
I just got back from Penang yesterday and now I decided to show you guys some of the photos I took in Penang. Sorry to post it up but I really want to show some of the scene in Penang. Hope you guys wouldn't mind. :) This is a sculpture which situated right beside a sculpture of Buddha. It looks quite scary, don't you think? I believe its motive of being such scary is to chase away the evils. This photo was taken in The Sleeping Buddha Temple (Wat Chayamangkalaram) in Penang. Tomorrow I'll show you the sleeping Buddha.

Have you seen this kind of sculpture? Or do you have any kind of similar sculpture in your city?
