Theme Day ~ Statue of King Rama I and King Taksin

>> Saturday, May 1, 2010

It seems I've just posted about Statue a few days ago, and I have no more Statue photo, this time I would dig the old photo from my archieve to present you again, the top one is King Taksin of Thonburi, the former king before Bangkok is set as capital. I used to post about his memorial day here.


The below one is King Rama I. He is the first King of our Chakri Dynasty in which we are in King Rama IX at this moment.

Those are grand statues. A little suprised to find a horse-man - I imagined other animals instead.

He stands so impressively above everything else. Your second shot is so much calmer. I like both.

Makes one wonder how it feels to be living in a country ruled by a king.
Please have a wonderful Sunday.

Good one for Theme Day!

I like both of them, though Rama I seems much more peaceful than King Thaksin.

The reason King Taksin looks more agressive because he win the victory against Myanmar, and he became King, while King Rama I run the country while it was peaceful.

Thank for all the comment :)
