Photographer's Note

Wat Mahathat, (Kings Palace) Old Sukhothai (1238-1278ad.) Sukhothai was the old capital of Thailand in the 13th century. Hiring a bicyle is a fun way to get around the ruins, which have sealed paths between the temples ideal for the purpose. (Scanned print, sharpened twice) The rooves were made of wood, (teak?) which has long since rotted away or been destroyed by fire. (Burmese invasions?). Only the stone columns remain today. The lower, central silhouette is a Buddha statue head & shoulders profile. Some of the columns have grass growing out of them.
