Garuda statue

I took a visit to the National Museum of Thailand in Bangkok last week, on the way there I met two Swedish guys who decided to tag allow and follow me there. When we were looking around the galleries one of the guys asked if I knew much about this kind of art, and it occurred to me that despite having a pretty decent knowledge of art history from the ancient Greeks and Romans through to the modern and contemporary art of today, that I actually didn’t really know much at all about the art that I was seeing. It’s something that sadly seems to slip western education at least certainty from my own experience.
