WAT PHO - Temple of The Reclining Buddha / Bangkok

A reclining Buddha is a statue that represents Buddha lying down and is a major iconographic and statuary pattern of Buddhism. It represents the historical Buddha during his last illness, about to enter the parinirvana. He is lying on the right flank, his head resting on a cushion or relying on his right elbow, supporting his head with his hand. After the Buddha's death, his followers decide to build a statue of him lying down. They first build the Reclining Buddha statue inside of the Wat Pho Temple then decades later; they start making the sculpture everywhere in South East Asia.
