Restoration of the Reclining Buddha's Feet, Bangkok
Besides his sheer size, the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho is known for having mother-of-pearl inlay on the soles of his enormous feet. Although these were under restoration while we were there, we were lucky enough to be able to peek in and see one of the artisans at work on them.
