That's just silly: worshipping a statue their own hands built of a man who never claimed to be divine or asked to be worshipped.
I love the composition of this photo. In photography i learned about great lightig and this defines that
A very striking image. As I view this image and seeing the different light temperature qualities.....can you foresee what this would look like if Transparency Film (slide film) would have been used? The only film used prior to digital.
Shafts of light, candle glow and perspective have all been used to great effect here. A lovely symbol of the tiny human spark ignited from the divine source.
