The tsunami memorial at Kamala Beach in Phuket. Over 300,000 perished in the Boxing Day Tsunami of 26 December, 2004. Approximately 7,000 died in Thailand alone. The memorial is built over the scoured out foundations of the old Kamala Beach Hotel which was destroyed in the tsunami.

The sculpture represents the inner forces of the earth, which created the earthquake & tsunami. Kamala Beach has almost completely recovered from the disaster.
