Life imitates art: Micheal Jackson on the Walls of Vittala, Hampi

Photography

Exploring the amazing architecture of Vittala Temple in Hampi, Karnataka will take you back centuries. Every wall and pillar were etched with unique details that reveal the story about the civilization back in the 15th century. Absorbing the art in itself would perhaps take days; learning the story behind each of these details, well, that’s another thing.

The motifs on the pillars revolved around a flowers, animals, Gods, and so on. This particular one, however, was much different from the other carvings. I was instantly reminded of  Micheal Jackson and his dance form.  I chuckled a bit thinking about Jackson performing at Hampi in the 15th Century. Well, Jackson is timeless.

    1. I saw this pillar perhaps around 2012. I thought I was amusing then and got a chance to share it only now. At first I wasn’t sure if it would make sense to others. Glad to know it does.
