The Thai Pavilion

The University of Wisconsin was presented with a lovely royal pavilion from Thailand and we saw it at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens.

The craftsmanship was truly amazing. In addition to the carved and painted wood, there were bits of mirror that added to the shimmer of the building.

This close-up shows the detailed designs on the columns.

This sign explained some of the symbols used.
