นี่คือ เครื่องอับเฉาด้วยเหรอครับ

ข้อมูลแน่นจริงๆครับ...

ƤōƝƓ-not going to Vi… on January 23, 2010

เครื่องอับเฉาจะแบบไหนก็ใช้ถ่วงน.น.เรือสำเภาได้หมดครับ

Nakhon224 Panoramio on January 23, 2010

ฉะนั้น เครื่องอับเฉาแต่ล่ะอัน น่าจะมีน้ำหนักเป็นตัน

และวิธีการขนส่งสมัยก่อนไม่มีถนน ต้องใช้เรือทั้งหมด

นับว่าคนเมื่อก่อนเก่งมากๆครับ

A very nicely composed, colourful and interesting shot Ah-Pong I would be interested to know what the "ship ballast" part of the title means?

Best wishes from Indonesia, John

Hi John Adamson, thanks a lot for your question.

This sculpture/statue used to be ship ballast from China as the Chinese traders came with lighter goods so they needed something heavy enough to control stability of their ships while sailing. On the way back, their ships would usually be packed with heavier goods from Siam (Thailand) so any ballast was not needed anymore. The Thais then found the ballast to be perfect decorative item so they installed a lot of the ballast in many major temples.

Hope my explanation is fair enough with my limited knowledge of English. More questions, if any, are also welcome. :)

All the best to Indonesia

Hello Ah-Pong. thank you so much for your explanation - it is very interesting and I understand your English perfectly.

Thanks again and best wishes, John
