Chiang Rai, Thailand ~ More a labor of love, than a money-maker, the artist Chalermchai Kositpipat has used his own funds to create this visual masterpiece. This is a place of worship, but also an artistic creation. Instead of the normal multi-colored hues, he chose white which symbolizes the purity of Lord Buddha.
“The mirrors embedded in the structure reflect light, representing the Buddha’s wisdom shining out across the Earth and the Universe.” ~ Thailandforchildren.com
