An Anonymous Neighbor

The National Museum in Bangkok houses incredibly interesting items, including royal funeral chariots, historical dioramas, ancient sculptures, and traditional costumes and games. The second most important Buddha in Thailand, the Phra Buddha Singh, sits in the Buddhaisawan Chapel. Wandering through the chapel with its mixture of old and new, I took this photo of one of the smaller buddha figures next to its more famous neighbor.
