January 17, 2011: Superman Painting Adorns Thailand Buddhist Temple

Temple Painting The Wat Rong Khun buddhist temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand is quite unique. Designed by artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, the temple is adorned with ceiling, wall and floor paintings featuring popular fictional characters... including Superman.

    Undoubtedly the most bizarre element of the design is the presence of contemporary images throughout the interior. Images of the Predator from the Schwarzenegger film franchise, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Avatar, Keanu Reeves' character in the Matrix, rocket ships, and others line the walls.
