BKK: First glimpse

mural at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Apirport This intricately detailed temple scene is just a small portion of the mural at the baggage claim area of Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport.
 painters working on a mural at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Apirport The richly elaborate mural covers one entire wall, and a couple of painters were still working on the last few panels when we went to Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, last November.
 steel and glass at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Apirport Except for decorative details like the mural and some sculptures, however, the industrial steel and glass architecture of the airport can make it seem like anywhere in the world. Which is probably reassuring to people who travel a lot.

I'd much rather have that amazing mural than the steel & glass that I can see anywhere else!

Very colorful and very beautiful and I'd guess it makes flying just a bit more pleasant!

Tune in tomorrow for the truth about snow in Ocala!

Wow, incredibly intricate. I don't know a thing about Thai religious iconography, but the first image looks like it contains heaven, hell, and earth. Is that possible? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

With all that detail going into the mural it is truly a piece of art.
