never ceases to amaze

the thousands of years old temples at angkor, cambodia. there are sculptures carved out in huge size on blocks of rock piled one on top of the other- but the shape, perspective and proportions are perfect despite and across the various blocks. how they managed it without all the sophisticated programs we have today is a wonder.
then again, maybe the availability of all these programs today just makes our brains lazy-so we get amazed at something that we would have been able to do today. naturally.
we'll never know.
