Taken in August of 2014 at Wat Mahathat in Ayutthaya
Taken near the famous head that is enveloped by a Strangler Fig on the grounds of Wat Mahathat temple. You may know this temple as one of the sites at with Jean Claude Van Damme’s Kickboxer movie was filmed, presented as a fictional location called Stone City.
I visited this gigantic Ganesh on the road between Ayutthaya and Nakornnayok to the northeast of Bangkok. Through the magic of Google, I was able to learn that the Thais refer to this deity as Phra Phikanet (พระพิฆเนศ), and that he is known as the remover of obstacles and the bringer of good fortune.
