Wood Carvings at Wat Maisuwankiri
high-definition creative commons photographs from Tumpat in Kelantan, Malaysia, showing the wood carvings from this Thai tradition temple, together with some further information.
The scenes photographed here are found on the doors and windows of the main temple at Wat Maisuwankiri.
They have various scenes from the Jatakas and the Life of the Buddha, not all of which I have been able to identify (if someone can give more information on some of the scenes please drop a note below).
As can be seen on the door opposite, I didn't manage to photograph all the carvings that are found there, and I hope to return one day to cover the rest.
More photographs from the same temple (including a larger photograph of the door can be found in the Wat Maisuwankiri album, where there is also more information about the temple itself.
