Reclining Buddha ~ Thailand

Reclining Buddha – Thailand

Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok

It’s the largest temple in Bangkok and famed for its huge and majestic reclining Buddha measured 46 metres long and covered in gold leaf. The Buddha’s feet are 3 metres long and exquisitely decorated in mother-of-pearl illustrations of auspicious ‘laksanas’ (characteristics) of the Buddha.

These stamps of the dancers have glitter embedded in them –

the areas that show up silver are glitter.

Art Object in the Vimanmek Mansion ~ Thailand

 

Art Object in Vimanmek Mansion – Thailand

Billed as the world’s largest teakwood building, Vimanmek Mansion was built as a royal residence in the first few years of the 20th century. It was only used for a few years before it fell into disuse and was practically forgotten until the early eighties. It was rediscovered by Her Majesty the Queen and turned into museum reflecting the Thai heritage from the dramatic reign of King Rama V.

From a single restored building in the 1980s, the Vimanmek Mansion Museum has grown to include more than 20 restored structures of the old Dusit Palace displaying everything from ancient artifacts of Thailand’s pre-history to contemporary photographs donated by His Majesty the King. Its now become a large complex of museums where the buildings themselves form part of the “collection” on display.    From Bangkok visitors Bureau
