Luang Prabang – Lost In The Details

These are two images from the Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham, in Luang Prabang. The first is the generic landscape view of the red interior nave and altar, with its array of gilded Buddhas. Gorgeous enough.Wat Mai, Luang Prabang

Take the trouble to perambulate around to the back however, and you will be rewarded with this peculiar, but stunning detail of a smaller Buddha, hidden right behind the large one at the altar!

Buddha, Luang PrabangIt is surprising that there aren’t many images of this rear view, that I found far more intriguing!!
