Godzilla attacks Thailand [Amazing Photo of the Day]

How many dotTechies are old enough to remember the original Godzilla movies? I personally am not but I do remember watching some Godzilla movies (maybe remakes of the original, I don’t remember) when I was younger. In any case, it is safe to say Godzilla isn’t real and only exists in movies. As long as you don’t live in Thailand. Check it out:


…Okay it obviously isn’t Godzilla and it obviously isn’t real (I don’t think the photo is photoshopped but rather the dragon is a fake). Still, though, an interesting picture. That is Wat Sampran, Thailand by the way.

    Hello, all.
    The oriental dragon is different from the medieval European dragon, which is also different from the ancient Biblical dragon.
    The Biblical version is a symbol representing the devil, and is also called “the serpent”.
    In some mythologies, the serpent is depicted as having its body wrapped around or encircling the earth or globe.

    Have a GREAT day, neighbors!

    I’ve watched bunches of Godzilla movies and think I have seen the original. I love how inconsistent they are. In some, Godzilla is evil and destroys everything. In others, he is good and saves the world from other monsters, and in the rest he is neutral. He fights the other monsters and doesn’t really care who or what he destroys in the process. Regardless of Godzilla’s attitude, half of Tokyo gets destroyed every time.

    I had a similar thought to 2y’s4u, that dragons in this part of the world are symbols of good luck, fortune, and in this case, wrapped around the building, it is a protector.

    Here is some info on Dragons for your perusal.

    The beginning of the dragon’s prominent place in China’s culture goes back to 10th century B.C. during the Zhou Dynasty. The dragon as symbol of nobility and power was spliced into three dragon types. The first being a five-clawed dragon to symbolize the power of the Emperor, then a four-clawed dragon for the nobles of the Emperor’s court, and a three-clawed dragon to represent the ministers. Later, during the Quin Dynasty (221 – 207 B.C.), the four and three-clawed dragons were used to represent the commoners. During the last imperial dynasty of China, the Quing Dynasty (1644 – 1912), the dragon of the Emperor was placed on China’s national flag (http://mysticalgenie.com/)
