This makes me happy. Had to stop a minute and contemplate it.

The lighting isn't great, and the background is a bit distracting. I'm not convinced the B&W works well - the shades of grey present are all pretty similar, and when you look at the photo, you first stare at the highlights in the top left corner, then look at the statue as a bit of an afterthought. Nice enough composition, unusual enough god, but could have been done better technically.
