Trapped by DrewHopper Trapped by DrewHopper
Wat Rong Khun, more well-known among foreigners as the White Temple, is a contemporary unconventional Buddhist temple in Chiang RaiThailand. It was designed by Chalermchai Kositpipat in 1997. The temple exhibits avant grade statements and architecture unconventional to all other temples in Thailand. These sculptures leading up to the entrance of the temple are rather eerie.

Nice shot! monochrome really make it look so eerie :heart:


actually Every sculpture in this temple do have meaning. 

I think those hand are of ghost in hell. They're asking you who going to temple to shared them some good karma so they may get out of hell.

Am I the only one that noticed the arm that looks like it's from the creature from the black lagoon?

I thought these were real hands from the thumbnail, and had to take a closer look. Quite disconcerting; and then I saw the face! 
Wonderful shot!

This picture is creepy, but awesome ! I really like it and the fact that if you look more closely, you can spot the skeleton hand, the robotic and claw ones.
