EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the awe-inspiring Giant reclining image of the Buddha entering Nirvana, a remarkable piece of ancient civilization preserved at the Gal Vihara in Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. Cut from a single slab of granite, this group of Buddha images is an extraordinary testament to the skill and artistry of past civilizations. The statue, situated outdoors amidst a serene setting, exudes a sense of tranquility and spirituality. Its contemporary presence stands as a reminder of the rich history and religious significance that Buddhism holds in Sri Lanka and across Asia. The color palette used in this photograph beautifully captures the essence of this deity's final moments before attaining enlightenment. The intricate details carved into the granite rock sculpture are truly mesmerizing, showcasing both artistic mastery and devotion to faith. As part of UNESCO's World Heritage Site list, this site serves as an archaeological treasure trove for those fascinated by ancient civilizations. It offers visitors an opportunity to delve into Ceylon's (Sri Lanka) rich cultural heritage while exploring its religious roots. Gavin Hellier/Robert Harding has masterfully captured not only the physical beauty but also the spiritual essence embodied within this image. Through his lens, we are transported back in time to witness one man's journey towards eternal peace – an evocative portrayal that resonates with viewers regardless of their beliefs or backgrounds.
