Call Me By My True Name


Lovely Buddha at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh sitting under a beautiful example of a Couroupita guianensis Aubl. tree (Lecythidaceae) with flowers (shown) and fruits (not visible). Unfortunately, the sign says "Shorea robusta Roxb." (Dipterocarpaceae), which this tree decidedly is not. [NOTE: Maybe this was done on purpose as a teaching about the difference between naming and knowing].
