Komainu statues serve as guardians at Japanese shrines.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Not sure if the Guardian has emerged from Nature or is returning to it . . how powerful this becomes.

Basile Pesso from Paris, France

Very good movie-like capture.
The Neverending Story or movies like that, this is what it makes me think about.
