I'm not sure how this photo, as interesting as it is, demonstrates the idiom

author says:

Thanks for the comment.

The idea of the photo and the idiom is that the decoration on the temple tower is complicated and a confusion of colours and shapes. The temple is also a typical one from the Pallava Dynasty of southern India so fits the idiom twice. Well that was my thought process anyway. I was always told that the idiom originated as a comment on the complicated decoration on temples, but no sure that is the case.
