Photographer's Note

My latest visiting to Wat Pho was started in late afternoon on sunday.This is fist shot in my favourite place.In my opinion,the reclining buddha of Wat Pho is most beautiful reclining buddha statue in Thailand.This reflect the early Rattanakorsin buddhist art.

This picture took in a negative color film(fuji superia 200)and scanned with Canon 8800F.

The reclining buddha temple or Phra Buddhasaiyas (Viharn Phranorn),King Rama III told his nobleman, Krom Muen Pumintarapakdi (Prince Laddawan), the head of department of the Ten Crafts as a construction team leader. After having moulded the image of the Reclining Buddha, the team continued with the hall.The image was made of stuccoed bricks gilded with gold leaves. This statue is 46 metres long, with the dimensions at the face of 15 metres high and at each foot of 3 metres high and 5 metres long.Derive from and hope you enjoy;-)
