Photographer's Note

Wat Traimit in Bangkok's Chinatown is home to the world's largest gold seated Buddha. It's nearly 5 meters tall and weighs about 5.5 tons. Artisans crafted the Buddhas in gold and disguised it from invading armies with a covering of stucco and plaster. Only an accidental drop years later while the Buddha was being moved revealed the solid gold Buddha beneath.
