At the incredible “White Temple” in Chiang Rai... the main building is the Ubosot: The all-white building with fragments of mirrored glass embedded in the building's exterior. The ubosot embodies design elements from classic Thai architecture such as the three-tiered roof and abundant use of Naga serpents. Inside the temple, the decor moves from pristine white to fiery and bewildering. Murals depict swirling orange flames and demon faces, interspersed with Western idols such as Michael Jackson, Neo from The Matrix, Freddy Krueger, and a T-800 Terminator. Images of nuclear warfare, terrorist attacks, and oil pumps hammer home the destructive impact that humans have had on earth. The presence of Harry Potter, Superman, and Hello Kitty confuses the message somewhat, but the overall moral is clear: people are wicked! Interesting is an understatement !
Next time you feel fear, either right after a major decision or just before one, it usually means you’re exactly where you need to be. ✨
One, fine afternoon in La Plancha. Still one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen. 💕🌊🌞
