“The image of Rahu with the sniper rifle has become the talk of the town,” nationalmultimedia.com reports. “A senior monk at the temple said tourists and others were flocking to its new pavilion to take a look and get photos of the painting. The painting, called ‘infinite universe’, was the work of Pirapong Khunchit, a well-known artist who was among leading painters selected to take part in restoring a hall in the Grand Palace in 1980 . . . The assistant abbot said the depiction was aimed at teaching a dharma concept. He said Phra Rahu was a semi-god and semi-demon. When blinded with anger and lust, he transformed from a god into a demon and in this case used the sniper rifle, firing it at the earth and causing hurt to others.” You have been warned.
