Photographer's Note

Detail from The Wheel of Life inside the sculpture garden of Salakaewkoo, or Wat Kaek, in the town of Nong Khai, Thailand.

The park and all of its sculptures were designed and created by a Laotian shaman named Luang Poo Boun Leua Sourirat and a group of his followers. His work reflects his spiritual beliefs; Hinduism, Mahayana Buddhism, animism, as well as a very strong distaste for communism, which was sweeping across his home country of Laos.

The sculptures are mostly brick with stucco, and not very old or graceful. Regardless, it is, perhaps, one of the most photogenic locations in the northeast of Thailand.
