Image of the day – backstreet art

Wall art is just one of the incredible sights I saw in Northern India.

From Maharajahs riding horses on pulled down shop shutters to elegant goddesses adorning dirty backstreet walls, every passageway, building, wall and brickwork is adorned with decoration.

Udiapur is one of the places with the most prolific artwork.

Blue skinned Vishnus stare over stacks of motorbikes, prowling tigers stalk homesteaders and a pantheon of deities stand guard over the lake city.
