Just when I thought I was about to die from heat stroke, we turned the corner across the bridge and another arm-flailing "WOW!!" erupted from my body. Did you really expect me to hold it in?! 😅 // #wow #sunset #bri#bridgeouette #bridge #head #chu#churningeocean #churningoftheoceanofmilk #churning #devas #hindu #religion #sculpture #river #angkor #angkorthom #siemreap #tuktuk #notuktuk #cambodia #explorecambodia

Churning Of The Ocean Of Milk. (乳海翻騰) 就…神話故事說來話長,總之很多印度人在拍照,不拍光站著欣賞好像很不融入印度社會,於是拍下了身在泰國卻彷彿在印度的荒謬照。📸 #ChurningOfTheOceanOfMilk#MountainMeru#Siva#Bangkok#Suvanabhumi#Airport#Thailand#transfer#KshirSagar#Hindu

The Churning of the Ocean of Milk sculptures installed at Suvarnabhumi International Airport hallway after the Immigration checkpoint. As depicted in the famous bas-relief scene in Angkor Wat, it shows the god Vishnu and his reincarnation of a giant turtle serving as pivot point as the serpent Vasuki (Naga) coils around Mt. Mandala on it. The asuras (demons) hold the head of the serpent while the vedas (gods) hold the tail. They turn and churn the vast ocean to extract the elixir of immortality called "amrita". Hindu cosmology also tells that the apsaras (heavenly nymphs) dance above in encouragement. #travelgram #travelphotography #churningoftheoceanofmilk #sculptures #suvarnabhumiairport #bangkok #thailand #artventures
