Elephant mount - Royal Palace, Bangkok

Elephants were not permitted in the palace grounds, so this special mounting area was built, separating the palace from the outside. The elephant was brought to this area where the king would step away from the palace and mount the elephant.

Thank you. I liked the proportion and harmony of the architect's lines.

very fine lines to the composition...what the architect would've framed, no doubt.
