photoblog image wat  hua lampong [5]

wat hua lampong [5]

Buddhist hell...a little different from the coconut palm lined sandy beaches one normally associates with Thailand.

The not-so-subtle message is clearly that living a life of wanton excess does carry wth it the risk of an unpleasant consequence.

----

Fifth of a short series of posts to show some of the art inside this building.

There are 32,000+ Buddhist temples [wats] in Thailand, and many are richly decorated.

This series was inspired by a wonderful series from Zebigleb  [ http://imaginerf.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Global_view_/ ] on a Rivera fresco he photographed in Mexico.

Nice capture. A truly disturbing idea of hell.
Ray: Thanks for your comment, Red Pen. I have no desire to visit this place...not even for the guided tour. [grin]

OMG, Ray. Talk about graphic! I guess that's the point, right!

Once again, I'm really liking your borders!!!
Ray: Yes! I think that is the point.
Regarding the borders...for the moment I have reverted from frames to simple borders, and it seems to work for these images.
j'adore ces illustrations d'enfer bouddhiste.
Ray: Merci, Isiate.
I am pleased you like them.
Wow - Each one of this serie is really interresting !
Ray: I am pleased they are of interest to you, Zebigleb.
Crual Crual Crual Life ... shoudl I stop smoking you think?!! Regards, Laurence
Ray: Ha Ha. Laurence, mon ami, I certainly think you should consider throwing away the Gauloises. Alternatively, you could start to indulge in some bigger sinful behaviour that will make it worthwhile ending up in this place. [grin]
OK OK I will be good from now onsmile Nice series.
Ray: Hi Nigel. I am glad you liked the series.
Yes....better be good.... "hell" doesn't have a lot of appeal to me. [grin]
