Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 10, 2015: Spirit Guardian, Thailand

Thai Spirit Guardian

 

While in Phuket, one year after the devastating tsunami, I saw several of these on the different beaches along the west coast of the island.  A guide informed us that they were placed to protect people at night from the spirits of those whose lives were lost during the tsunami, who may still be wandering the beaches trying to return to loved ones.
