International passion for colour in the Netherlands
A colourful and unique temple is found in Den Helder (NL). Reaching 17 meters it is the only Hindu temple with tower in Europe that complies in detail with the measurements given in Hindu scriptures. Those same regulations require that the temple must not be repainted until after 12 years. That is why sustainable long-life paint was chosen to resist sea winds and discolouring. This specialist task was performed by eight artists from Sri Lanka using Ralston colour pastes and paints. A feat of international allure, based on Dutch craftsmanship.
