Wat Pho- An Artistic Critique
I think this is one of the beautiful sites of Thailand. I would also like to note the abstracted yet representational features of the reclining Buddha. Giving him a human image provides the viewer of the sense of the realness of the Buddha's teaching. Yet we note that some of the feature are not realist at all. Perhaps this is meant show that irrational nature of enlightenment.
I always like to apply western art concept with eastern ones. But I suppose that from a relative point of view it would be impossible since the true motives of the artist is different.
