    Damn! they're good. I wonder how long they take to make.

    What are they for? The Buddhist Lent?

    Nice tits, eh?

    They are for Khao Phansa, the beginning of the Buddhist lent.

    Too me it looks like they make the sculptures out of wire and plaster and then coat them with wax and carve in the details. Some are quite well done.

    I'm not sure how long they take to make. I was trying to find the wats where they are made, but never had any luck. I started seeing the parts of them being moved around a couple of weeks ago. I think they work on them in sections in many places and then assemble them as huge floats just before the days they are displayed.

    I took these photos at The Mall here in Korat. On Khao Phansa they were in a parade and then displayed at City Hall.

    I agree, quite fantastic.
