    Bumblebee has officially ascended to godhood? And here I thought all of us that hated on all of Bumblebee's toys had a future.

    I was being facetious with my title - the painting is actually in a chamber meant for meditation to achieve higher consciousness.

    I was kind of hoping that article would explain why those images were there. I don't know enough about Buddhism, though, to even be able to guess at the possible symbolism.

    Or...are they?

    That sure looks pretty impressive, and I get the feeling that murals of that nature are more about using symbols and mythical figures we are familiar with in modern times to look at the world around us and ourselves, or possibly to show those figures to future generations as characters that were important to us here and now. They said themselves the temple likely wouldn't be finished for 100 years.

    It could also be that since the theme of the temple is escaping temptations and achieving nirvana and a truly enlightened way of being, that those characters are meant to symbolize a lot of the vices and corporatism that we let ourselves ascribe to.
