Murtis Around Town


When is garden statuary merely a decorative object and when is it a murti–an object of devotion, a representation of some aspect of the divine?  It may well seem different for the artist, the person who chose its location, and the viewers.

Would you have a different reaction if this angel was on the grounds of a church? What about a temple? A national park? Your workplace? A sculpture museum?
