Seated Buddha Image in the style of the Dvaravati culture. Quite unusual seated position (in what is often called the European way of sitting).

Under the seated Buddha, these offerings.

Following from my earlier posts about Ayutthaya, here, and here, we journeyed a short distance (about 10 minutes away) to Wat Na Phramen, where I took these photos. Thank goodness for internet search engines and for metadata on the photos – which told me there was a half hour break between shooting – or I would have no idea where these were taken.

Near these Buddhist statues was a small but beautifully decorated building, which I couldn’t find in the photos on the linked page.

And lastly, a many-headed Buddha and a very large bell in a building where we were able to get out of the sun.

    Interesting. I’d never thought of it that way…but yes, you could consider the various degrees of intricacy in the arts and crafts of various cultures.
