Hair Color Was Blue

Buddha statue with blue hair

Their hair color was vivid

Shot at Da Tian Hou Gong, a shrine dedicated to Mazu in Tainan, Taiwan.

The temples in the heart of the city were surrounded by other normal buildings. They stood in the dense zone. So the precincts were not so vast. Alternatively, I thought the precincts were long and thin.

It was same here. Walking into the back, I saw many altars. The religion which was believed here was not a monotheistic religion. So various deities were stationed in the precinct. It was difficult to know which deity was in front of me. These three statues in this photo were also unknown to me. Nevertheless, they attracted me so much because their hair color was deep blue. There were some deities which dressed up as a punk on this island.
