Overgrown roots of a Banyan Tree - Angkor Wat, Cambodia. these things fascinate and scare the hell out of me at the same time. its like, i think im gonna be strangled alive, but i might just enjoy it. perhaps the most gorgeous and stultifying of deaths?
Koh Ker, Cambodia. Temple in Prasat Pram made of brick is spectacularly clothed in tree roots of the strangler fig. This parasitic tree usually feeds off the tree and eventually kills its host. On this occasion the roots of the fig are both destroyer and scaffolding giving support to the loosened brickwork of the left hand tower.
