Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Details on the King’s Cars

In the Royal Carriage Museum in Dusit Park, Bangkok, there are an array of antique vehicles with some unique-to-Thailand detailing.

The humanoid bird that appears on the back of the car is Garuda, the vahana (vehicle) of the Lord Vishnu, and the national symbol of Thailand.
