Unexpected Visions

Normally when I’m walking somewhere I’m in my own little world and don’t notice anything or anyone unless I’m purposefully looking for it/them. On one of my many trips to the Trinity Silom Hotel over last week though, I happened to glance to my right as I was walking past the Trinity Complex at a water fountain. More to the point, it was the statue of the virgin mary statue sitting behind it that I was looking at.

I stopped and thought about it for a second and decided that yes, that’s unusual and kept walking (although I mentioned it to my other-half later and he agreed it is a little unusual).

You don’t see many symbols of christianity in Bangkok since Buddhism is the dominant religion, and for that I’m glad. Has anyone else noticed unexpected religious symbols around the place?
