Fabulous Photo Friday: Thai Buddhism Iconography

The images of Thai Buddhism will stay with me forever.  The Golden, intricate figures and images are somehow soothing, awe inspiring, and even sacred.  They are steeped in antiquity, history and worship.  Look at the peaceful faces of the Buddhas, and the sometimes fierce aspect of the protectors.  I do want to return to Thailand to see them all again.
