Buddha sits on a lotus blossom, surrounded by stylized flames that form a halo. At his feet, four monks in saffron robes clasp their hands in prayer. Pathawee brings his own interpretation to a beautiful temple painting at the Wat Phumin.
Wat Phumin, in Nan province, is situated in northern Thailand and was established in the period of Sukhothai. It differs from other temples in that its ceremonial and public areas are housed under the same roof. Its murals depict the Buddha, local legends and the lifestyle and culture of Lanna (northern Thai) people in the past.
Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist nation, filled with breathtaking ancient temples, pagodas and other architectural wonders constructed to worship Buddha. In Thailand images of Buddha play an important role beyond mere decoration. They are traditionally placed within the home in special locations, such as shrines or pedestals, to help facilitate everyday religious worship.
