photoblog image The Wall #2

The Wall #2

Villagers partying in front of the village temple...it might even be a procession to the temple to acknowledge some special event on the calendar...several play musical instruments...some dance...at least one is tippling the rice whisky...all are wearing traditional costumes.

 

After living several years in a small, up-country, Thai Village, I can confirm that scenes somewhat like this can be observed at least once a month...the main differences might be that folks these days tend to wear flip flops rather than going bare-footed, and the very loud music might be recorded music being played through a massive, mobile PA system.

the upper body wear has a Thai touch but the lower body wear could be from elsewhere in the south east region as well (unless i am missing some subtle peculiarities). you missed out another difference, Ray; in recent times a tall fella is seen with a camera on his face.
Ray: Yes...sarongs are still common in many parts of SE Asia, Ayush.

Simple pleasures. There's a pet dragon in the background too
Ray: The dragon [water serpent aka Naga] is common around temples, Chris.
Still the spirit is the same!
Ray: That is so, Bill.

No doubt the creator had no end of scenes to model this on. From want you've shown us before, there is any excuse for a party.
Ray: Thais folks sure like to party, Alan.

This conveys a sense of fun and laughter very well Ray. The people look happy and we can understand the movement here.
Ray: I think these things are changing very little so far, Chad.
Jolis détails, j'aime beaucoup le graphisme.
Ray: Ce sont des peintures murales 3D attrayantes, Martine.
There's obviously great enjoyment in whatever activity is going on!
Ray: Up-country Thais love their rituals and ceremonies, Tom.
The modelling and painting on this is superb.
Ray: I also think they are very well done, Brian.
It certainly conveys its message, Ray.
Ray: I think so, too, Frank.
now that is a party painted on the terracotta tiles on the wall Ray... yesterday i thought that they would have been mosaics...
i like this style of art very much....petersmile
Ray: It is a very pleasing set of panels, Peter.
so one in ten Thais are likely to go bald according to this
Ray: You are a fine statistician, Martin... smile
