Indonesia is known to have a long history of Buddhist and Hindu kingdoms before Islam and Christianity entered the archipelago in the sixteenth century.

Those kingdoms have long gone, but traces of their civilization and sophistication can still be found today.

Candi, or temple, is an ancient heritage building from the time of Hindu or Buddhist kingdoms in the past. These temples could have been a place of worship, a gateway, or a sacred spring. They are no longer in use now and are either burnt, ruined, or decayed. However, some temples in Java and Sumatera survived the centuries and wars that we can still visit them today. Some areas in Bali and Kalimantan also still have ther traces of those temples, though mostly are in form of ruins.

Brilio.net -  People say artists are those who can see beauty in every object, even the most ordinary or most messy ones. South Korean artist Me Kyeoung Lee is definitely that kind of person. She sketched beautiful and intricately detailed traditional convenient stores, and show people the charm of the places they might have passed by all this time.

She has spent 20 years making those sketches, and it pays off.

“There were not many things to see and play like these days,” she said, looked back to her younger years. “But there was a time when I was happy to have a coin in my hands and run to a shop and hang out with friends gathered in front of it.”

All of those convenience stores, drawn in pastel colors with acrylic pens, considered as an integral part of the South Korean culture. Today, there’s no less than 33,000 of such stores across the country.

The details are amazing. Look at how she makes strokes and shadows!

He turned normal-sized-made-small chicken meat, carrot, broccoli, onions, as well as a quail egg into a teeny-weeny portion of food.

And by the way, the quail egg looks like a dinosaur’s egg, doesn’t it?
