Frozen in Time

Some things will never change. These pretty carvings certainly fall into that category. We spotted them at the entrance to the breathtakingly beautiful 16th-century palace.

Osaka, Japan. April 2019

    Awww what lovely birds. Saw some of these in Japan, where they were invariably made to wear crochet hats in winter 🙂

      Haha…I’m sure they looked cute with those crochet hats on. 🙂

    I think they are meant to portray serenity. Sadly, reminds me of the fact that these days, I almost never see sparrows around.

    • Esha MD

      True, Doc. The sparrows were such a common sight up until a decade or two back.

    The detailing on the birds is so good! Japan has been on my wish list for a while now. Need to go there soon.

    • Esha MD

      It is the detailing that caught my eye, Soumya. And yes, Japan will mesmerize you. You’ll fall in love with the breathtaking beauty of the country. And there’s so much more to it.

    Aww…such cute little birdies! 🙂 Did you buy any as a memento?

    • Mahati ramya adivishnu

      That statue is really soothing

    • Esha MD

      No, didn’t buy any. But, I loved the pretty sculptures that we found here and there during our two-weeks long travels. Wish I could capture more such!

    Beautiful carvings. I love birds and have some bird art in my house., which is definitely not a palace.

    • Esha MD

      Thank you, Alana. So glad you love birds and yes, would love to see the picture of the bird art in your house, if you’d like to share it someday! Always a great fan of your flower pics, btw. 🙂
