Great kasianowak 2021-06-07 2:23

Hi Gert
I suspect you included the poster and the man to introduce splashes of red that match one of the old facades. That colour, not just the posters, connects this image with the WS in form of red balloons. Am I right? :-)
You've just made me realise I know more about the history of Iran than that of Sweden, which is an across-the-sea neighbour of Poland, which I found slightly disconcerting... I have heard of the Vasa dynasty of course, for obvious reasons. :-D
Have a nice week
Kasia

Default To COSTANTINO: Lack of adequate information

Thank you Costantino,


There was no information about this statue on site or in my travel guide.
As a result, we can only estimate the dimensions.
Since no one was around, our only clues are the stairs at the front and the trees at the back.
Or the tree in the photo in the WS.

Kind regards,
Paul

Thank you Chris,

I had seen that site.
It shows a very good picture of the giant Buddha.
But the information is mostly on Wat Ek Phnom, the more important ancient temple (not visible on the pic) nearby.

The only additional information about the giant statue is that construction of it has been stopped by the government because, they say, it affects the site's timeless beauty.

Kind regards,
Paul
