This ruin used to be a mansion well known for its delicate architecture in Kastamonu, Turkey. It was burn down to earth due to a fire. Despite
the very killing nature of the fire, In a couple of years, an uncontrolled life started to emerge through the ashes.
Various plants and even a tree started to take over the place. Not to mention cats, dogs and children. It reminds me of the Sanskrit word “Samsara”, I once read about, “the rebirth and cyclicality of all life, matter and existence”.
