"What’s left of someone’s creation,

becomes another’s innovation"

"As I move my pencil I can feel tiny granite grains rolling in the nerves of my paper. Through my pencil I feel the softness, ... the hardness of the pressure I apply. The thickness of my sketch, the thinness of the line is all in my hands. There is little room for error but mistakes are easily made. At times I need to erase my failures that will always remain in an under-layer. Regardless how many times I need to restart, 

moving forward is my only way." ~ Mata

"Glorious Face" ~ Kīrttimukha

Kīrttimukha, the word mukha in Sanskrit refers to the face while kīrti means "fame, glory". The legend of this "glorious face" dates back to the Skanda Purana carrying the name of a swallowing fierce monster face with huge fangs, and gaping mouth. After the monster ate itself leaving just his head, as Lord Shiva had ordered, Lord Shiva praised it with making it the guardian of his temple. It is mostly seen in Hindu and Buddhist temple architecture in South (East) Asia.
