Bangkok: "Erawan Museum, Redux"
January 29, 2007
I have had a very positive reaction to my letter and photos from the Erawan Museum. So I thought it would be a good idea to send out a few more photos.
The four pillars of the musem are decorated with religious scenes from the major religions. I have sent a few Biblical scenes.
Notice that much of the sculpture work and museum decoration is actually "colored" by small pieces of broken porcelain dishes. that are artfully arranged.
And when you visit Bangkok, I am will take you to my favorite temple - Wat Arun. the entire temple complex is decorated in the same manner.
Have a great weekend.
