  • Reconstruction of Ban Tanod Colossal Bronze Bodhisattva, Nakhon Ratchasima Province, Thailand
  • Disapong Netlomwong (Fine Arts Department of Thailand)
  • This talk will discuss this new interpretation, ritual implications evidenced by 3D scanning, and the visual perceptions of worshippers who associate closely with the statue’s original form and gesture.
