TH08: Thai Thor

Or rather Thai Heimdall. I can see how the Marvel character's stern and somewhat aloof stance may have been inspired by this fierce guardian at Wat Pho.

You have shown it off well, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Pleased that you liked it Ray
I see what you mean! I love your low angle - making him see like a real giant!
Ayush Basu: Thank you Elizabeth. He was towering; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin.
Nice shot. That is a beautiful statue.
Ayush Basu: Glad you liked it Michael.

What a wonderful, fierce & colourful sight he makes
Ayush Basu: The colours certainly stood out even on a cloudy day with drab lighting, Chris.

What a great way to view him!
Ayush Basu: Please that you think so Mary.
Great perspective of this scary character
Ayush Basu: He was towering above me Janet; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin.
Impressive one !
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much
You wouldn't want to meet him on a dark night smile
Ayush Basu: He was towering; I was just bending down a bit to take this picture. So you are quite right there Brian smile
J'adore l'angle de votre prise de vue !
Ayush Basu: je pense que c'est une occasion de la chance. merci beaucoup
Just a lucky shot I guess. He was towering above me so all I had to do was bend down a bit and click smile
Quite impressive Ayush! Great POV too.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Richard

Especially seen from that angle, Ayush, your comment is understandable
Ayush Basu: He was towering, Lisl; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin.

Fierce and most colorful, Ayush! I'd love to know more about these designs and colors for a temple guardian.
Ayush Basu: Unfortunately I do not have any background on the colours of the statues but all of them were quite bright and vibrant, Ginnie, thank you for raising that point.

You made this into a mighty man, Ayush. Love the angle and all the nice colours/patterns.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Astrid. He was towering; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin.

My word., he does look rather formidable. Little clue as to the size but it looks big.
Ayush Basu: He was towering; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin. Thank you Alan, for the visit and comment.

Those helping him dress clearly misheard his command 'Thai Tor' for tighter Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Haha good one, I had a nice laugh with your response Chad
He's great, Ayush. His stance reminds of the Maori people.
Ayush Basu: I am not that familiar with the Maori people but perhaps I can get an idea what you are referring to Pauline

He will have to be strong to carry all that clothing and equipment.
Ayush Basu: I suppose he will not have much of a problem on that account Louis smile
A formidable opponent! Great POV Ayush smile
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, not to be trifled with. Thank you Martin
He looks rather gigantic and fearsome from this angle, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: He was towering; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin. Thank you Beverly
That is pretty powerful Ayush
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, he is mighty and well proportioned and that scowl goes well to show his fierce nature.
this is a magnificent sculpture Ayush... i like your point of view....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Peter. He was towering; I was just bending down a bit. If I went up by one floor, I would be above his head by a small margin.
i haven't seen the film yet, but a super giant!
Ayush Basu: It is more the common points of the stance and their responsibility that struck me, EP.
