The weather prediction was quite nice for today, so we decided to head to Benoa Harbor for a short trip. Right after the entrance, we were greeted by this wonderful statue.
We were amazed by all the details that had been made and the elaborate work. The bright colours shone in the sunlight and it was quite an amazing view.
By the way, just for comparison. You can see the door in which I’m standing in the photo above, too. Impressive, how big and still detailed the statue is.
The statue on the next roundabout had 4 faces, one for each side. When we walked around it, we noticed that all the four faces are slightly different. The expression gets more aggressive with every turn of the statue. If you click on the photos above, you can see them in a bigger version.
This statue, too, is a beautiful work of art. The details in the faces and the crown are absolutely spectacular! I don’t know if you could notice the eyes in the photos. The pupils aren’t just painted, but worked in 3D.
The last statue depicts the world turtle that carries a cupola that is supported by four holy snakes.
Again, it is outstanding how much detail the workers gave to the statue. Look at the photos above! To be able to see more details, just click on the photos.
Our next stop was the harbour promenade. We never imagined that there would be so many ships anchored there. It looked like a crowded car park in a huge shopping centre.
The fishermen and boat crew members have to cross other boats to get to their own one, and all the supplies and provisions have to be transported over these other boats, too. That must be a crazy amount of work!
All the ships in the harbour are beautifully coloured. Some of them look quite spooky, and I probably wouldn’t dare crossing a storm on them, but it seems they are pretty sturdy.
Since the weather was so nice and the sky wore a beautiful blue, the greenish colour of the sea was remarkable today.
