Statue of Brahma
The statue of Brahma shown in the image stands in the inner chamber of the Brahma Temple in Prambanan located 11 miles northeast of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The four faces symbolize the four directions of the wind and four Vedas.

Even though Brahma is the creator in Hindu mythology, he is not worshiped like Shiva and Vishnu, so temples dedicated to Brahma are rare in India and Southeast Asia.
