Ban Bat community in Bangkok

Bangkok is not only a vertiginous skyline made of catchy colours. It is most of all an inextricable mix of communities, more or less wealthy.

 

I took this photograph in the area of the former Ayutthaya community, who used to earn their living by using their original knowledge to make high-priced "Bat", the traditional Alms bowl used by monks to receive their donation of food every morning.

 

Although the community has declined due to the introduction of factory produced Bat, there are still a small number of families making Bat in the traditional way

 

Please, have a look to my Thailand album!
