Thai So Exhibition, Amphor Kusuman, Sakon Nakhon, Thailand
The Thai So people inhabited and area near Amphor Kusumam into the early 1900s. Amongst other oddities they had there own alphabet. There are plenty of artifacts at the Museum which is open daily, not weekends or holidays at 0830h, Isaan time.
Many of the explanations of things are faded out, but is an interesting place to stop when travelling from Sakon Nakhon toward Nakhon Phanom. I find the statuary out side most interesting and have seen that hair elsewhere on statues in the area, but the photos inside the museum show a different hairstyle. Beats me.
What I am doing lately with still photos is putting them together into a video slide show at youtube, just a little easier to watch.
