Title

Consecration: Poolsin Pat's smaller Buddha statues, 1987

Description

Along with the large statue of the Buddha teaching, Poolsin Pat also sculpted four other smaller statues. The string that is wrapped around the statues began at the altar outside, was suspended between a tree and the eaves of the temple roof, and brought inside through the window behind the altar where it was wrapped around the statues. The area inside the string and anyone touching it is protected from bad spirits by the power of the Buddha.
