Does anybody else get emotionally exhausted filling in descriptions?
So I recognize that I’m no pro at relationships, the universe knows our relationship is as human as any, and I will always make my fair share of mistakes within it. That being said, I’ve been lucky enough to find a best friend who’s a fucking warrior, and I’ve been smart enough to stick around when I saw it. And because of it I’ve got a partner that will literally rip up the carpet, tear down walls, and build a home with me; funny as it sounds, that’s already been a more meaningful experience than anything I’ve ever known or could have asked for. No matter where life takes us in the end; I’m going to forever be grateful for the time we’ve spent together, the life we’ve built, and the man you’ve helped me become. Te Amo Samm. Gracias por todo. I couldn’t do it without you. @cr0nopia_

"Dvarapalas are classified as parivara-devathas, meaning that Dvarapalas are semi-divine beings of a minor class who form the entourage of the main deity they serve."

Wip - Temple Statue #2 (Sold) "Depending on the size and wealth of the temple, the guardians could be placed singly, in pairs or in larger groups. Smaller structures may have had only one dvarapala. Often there was a pair placed on either side of the threshold to the shrine. Some larger sites may have had four, eight, or 12." -Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art

Wip - Temple Statue #2 (Sold) "The sculptures in Java and Bali, usually carved from andesite stone, portray the dvarapala as fearsome giants with a rather bulky physique in semi kneeling position and holding a club. The largest dvarapala stone statue in Java, a dvarapala of the Singhasari period, is 3.7 meters tall. The traditional dvarapalas of Cambodia and Thailand, on the other hand, are leaner and portrayed in a standing position holding the club downward in the center." - Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art
Wip - Temple Statue #2 (Sold) "A dvarapala (Sanskrit pronunciation: [d̪ʋaʈapala]; IAST: Dvarapala; Sanskrit: द्वारपाला :"door guard") is a door or gate guardian often portrayed as a warrior or fearsome giant, usually armed with a weapon. The related name in Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Malaysia is dwarapala. Equivalent door guardians in northern Asian languages are Kongōrikishi or Niō in Japanese, Heng Ha Er Jiang in Chinese, and Narayeongeumgang in Korean." -Helena A. van Bemmel, Dvārapālas in Indonesia: temple guardians and acculturation By Helena A. van Bemmel
