Back in Bangkok, we visited the stunning Erawan Museum, The gardens featured ethereal statues sitting serenely in the pond. Floating lotuses
blossomed in rich hues of pink. The museum itself stood strong as a giant bronze three-headed elephant. What wonders lay within...
Intricately beautiful mosaic work reminded me of our visit to the Grand Temple. Continuously inspired, a colourful palette was chosen for a little
interpretation. The mosaic dress features statement pleats, with seed beads adding detail. Secret gardens prove perfect for a green escape.
Admiring the details closely, it became clear that decorative bowls and spoons had been used to embellish the walls. I love the idea of using
something for a different purpose than that originally intended. Walking around, we gazed in awe at precious artifacts from different dynasties.
. High above, the stained glass ceiling beneath the dome was etched with a map of the world, stars and zodiac symbols. The structure and
characteristics of the three internal floors were designed to represent an aspect of Hindu mythology; the three realms of life and the universe.
We also visited Ancient Siam - a vast park containing architecture influenced by many famous landmarks; almost a mini Thailand. Scaling
the heights, the view from the top was worth the walk in the balmy warmth. Soft shades of pink, fuchsia and silver combine within an amulet alcove.
There's something calming about seeing tiny pockets of sunshine dappled on the ground. A fallen frangipani flower felt like a little parting gift, where
it was truly an amazing visit. I'm already excited about growing exotic florals in the garden next year! A small reminder until the next time I'm here...
