The murals inside Viharn Lai Kham date from the mid-19th century and illustrate two non-Canonical Jataka Stories, one of Songthong and the other Suwanna Hongse, but they also depict the life of the people around the time they were painted.
I took the photographs in July 2011, and the video was made in August, using pan and zoom techniques to animate the photographs. The traditional Thai Yuan music, called Ruesii Long Tham, is by Lanna Orchid from Chiang Mai University.
Many more photographs, including these, can be found on my Photo Dharma website at the following address: Wat Phra Singh, along with 850+ other photographs from Thailand.
