Photo of the week: Wooden Buddha Statue at Wat Phra Kaew in Chiang Rai, Thailand

head of a wooden buddha statue in Wat Phra Kaew in Chiang Rai, Thailand

This week’s travel photo is of the head of a carved wooden Buddha statue located in the museum of Wat Phra Kaew, in Chiang Rai, Thailand. This temple once housed the famous Emerald Buddha, and many believe that it originated from here. The museum in Wat Phra Kaew has many interesting and valuable objects, but I particularly liked this carved wooden Buddha, as it is different to the usual Buddha statues that are found through out Thailand.
