Gold gilded door carvings, Luang Prabang, Laos

Location: Door carvings, Luang Prabang, Laos (19° 53′ 0″ N, 102° 8′ 0″ E)

Camera: Canon EOS 300D with kit lens

The cultures and histories of some Indochinese countries- Laos, Cambodia and Thailand are closely related. Their historical figures can be seen to don similar costumes and headgears. The above Laotian sculpture could easily have been something one spots in Thailand. I guessed the similarities could be due to the aggressions of one country against another in the past.
