Water and The Sacred
a photographic exhibition by Claude Renault
Amber: Sacred Tank
21 Amber: Sacred Tank

A kid diving into the sacred tank in Amber. The ancient Hindu village extends behind the imposing fortress, and is surprisingly rich in unvisited marvels, like the Krishna temple, all carved in white marble. Beautiful, welcoming and peaceful. The water tank tradition is of the utmost importance in the arid and semi- desert Indian state of Rajasthan, The tank needs to be very deep, so a lot of stairs are geometrically built, a graphic delight.
