How very sad, it certainly is unique. I hope for the artists sake that repairs can be made.

Sad indeed.
For sure it's a wonderful piece of work.

That is so sad to read about. As others have said, how sad to have your work destroyed -- it is a work of love and so unique and a very popular tourist attraction in the region. I hope for everyone that this amazing temple can be repaired.
