Exactly this. This is not ancient art. This is a modern translation of ancient tales.
I am absolutely all for the investigation into legends, and I truly believe that we have forgotten much of our ancient history. But I don't accept
that some very clear and colorful images on the inside of a temple are indicative of anything other than the desire to make money from tourism from
Also, it's known that these cultures appreciate Caucasian appearance. Blue eyes, pale skin, blonde hair... all of these are seen as interesting and
beautiful in many cultures around the world.
Even going to some parts of Europe, a blue-eyed blonde-haired person receives a lot of attention. On a holiday to Spain with family a decade ago we
met plenty of people who fell in love with my two year old nephew, because he has blue eyes and blonde hair. That was the one thing they all commented
on and marveled at.
It's all interesting, but I don't think art on the tourist trail in commercialized Asian nations is any indication of anything other than their need
to be a tourist destination.
