Pallava Group of Images, Phang-nga เทวรูปปัลลวะ พังงา

Pallava Group of Images, Phang-nga เทวรูปปัลลวะ พังงา
The images of the three Hindu deities, Vishnu, Shiva and Laksamee were carved out of stone by Pallava sculptors living in southern India around the 8th-9th centuries A.D. Later during the fifth reign in Rattanakosin period King Rama VI, who was still the Crown Prince, travelled to see

These images whose faces and bodies strangely stood out of the trunk of a tree that had grown around them. Nobody knows where the images come from. However, from the ornaments and hair styles, we can presume that the statues are of Indian origin.

Now these original images are kept at the Nakhon Si Thammarat National Museum.
