Wat Umong

This sign is posted outside of Wat Umong.

This week two German artist who have been teaching for a semester in Bangkok came up to Chiang Mai for a few days. The graduate students from the new media department took us to feed some scary fish. There's a video of them on my flickr site (the fish, not the artists).

Then we visited Wat Umong, a 14th century temple a couple miles from the university. There is some wall painting in the tunnels at the temple - rare for Thailand - the moisture destroys paintings very quickly here. Even these examples were barely visible.

German artists feed Thai art.
