EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable piece of history, the Pedestal from Danang province in Vietnam. Dating back to the 13th century AD, this grey sandstone artifact is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of the Champa Civilization that thrived between the 2nd and 17th centuries. The intricate carving on this pedestal tells an enchanting story steeped in mythology and religion. The motif features various elements such as flames, lions, telemons, and garudas - all significant symbols within Hinduism. These mythological creatures are beautifully sculpted into the stone with meticulous detail. From its side view, one can appreciate the craftsmanship that went into creating this masterpiece. Every curve and contour has been carefully chiseled to perfection by skilled artisans of ancient times. The presence of breast motifs adds another layer of symbolism and intrigue to this already mesmerizing sculpture. As we gaze upon this relic from Southeast Asia's past, it transports us back in time to an era when these lands were alive with vibrant cultures and profound spiritual beliefs. It serves as a reminder of our shared human history and how art has always played a vital role in expressing our deepest beliefs. Preserved at Cham Museum in Danang today, this photograph captured by Stefano Baldini allows us to marvel at its beauty even from afar. Its significance extends far beyond mere aesthetics; it represents a bridge connecting us to our ancestors' traditions and aspirations for transcendence through religious devotion.
