Jonathan Barkan tipped me off to this page that’s loaded with terrifying, yet beautiful imagery from the Bang Saen Hell Garden, just south of Bangkok.
Says the source, every detail of Buddhist hell is represented in statues. “Most of the suffering is inflicted by these demonic elves in red nappies,” they write.
There’s an entire tree sculpted out of concrete and plaster – every thorn and leaf depicted. For different sins people are to be changed into different animals, before hell’s helpers get to work on them.
