Asia Obscure has a post, Jesus and Mary in a little Indian boat, about a small concrete block building in India that serves as a Christian chapel. Some of the cultural blending is puzzling, for example Christ and the Virgin Mary pictured in a boat on its roof; while others -- like the clean lines, bright colors and Indian style statuary -- is quite charming. As always, cultural influences swirl around in time and space, transforming and growing as they move through us all.
