Some men worked in front of the eyes

Shot at Swayambhunath, a Buddhist religious complex in Kathmandu, Nepal.

There was a big stupa on the top of the hill. And the big eyes of Buddha were depicted on it. It was believed that they were looking over the world. And in front of them, some men were working on its renovation.

Yet the holy eyes kept looking into the distance. The eyes seemed not to be interested in the renovation. It might be too busy to keep taking a survey around the world. The repair of itself could be too small to make a difference.
