Another member of the painting crew at Wat Xieng Thong (see Painting). Although this monk is precariously seated on single plank supported by bamboo scaffolding, the one immediately above him (feet and robe visible) seems to have a chair. Precariously balanced on two planks. Image below shows a beautifully rendered, gilded carving of the Buddha on one of the doors at the temple. [NOTE: I am certainly ready to go back to this enchanting place].
