Cho Fa in Laos

Cho Fa in Laos, originally uploaded by nrillustration.

My theme for the moment is the cho fa. Cho fas are the roof finials used to decorate temples and other important buildings in much of SE Asia. This photo is from a temple in Laos. The temples in Thailand are nearly all adorned with nagas (snakes) so I was surprised to see dragons.
