Main Temple, Wat Triamit, Bangkok Wat Triamit was one of Bangkok's lesser temples until the amazing discovery of it's main attaction in 1955, when an old painted-stucco sculpture of the seated Buddha was being relocated to the temple; dropped by a crane during the process, the figure's stucco finished cracked, revealing beneath a beautiful solid gold statue, the largest in the World. The Golden Buddha is believed to date as far back as the 13th century, in the Sukhothai style. It is believed to have been moved to the previous capital Ayutthaya until it's sack by the Burmese, at which point the statue must have been disguised under a stucco layer to protect it from the invading forces who looted the city. It lay forgotten for a good two centuries in Bangkok before it's true importance was revealed again. Today it is housed in a brand new shrine at the Wat Triamit Temple complex in Bangkok's Chinatown. The new Temple takes the form of a terraced structure crowned by a golden-steepled tower, under which the Buddha has sat since his relocation here in February 2010. The new temple is quite stunning, especially since all it's gilt and marble was still less than a year old when we visited, a wonderful introdtuction to the glorious Buddhist sites of the city. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Buddha_%28statue%29

Buddhist Sculpture Ancient religious sculpture housed in the ground floor gallery of the Shanghai Museum. Shanghai's Museum of Ancient Chinese Art is housed in a major work of modern architecture (built in 1995 in a form symbolising 'a round heaven and a square earth', also reminiscent of an ancient Chinese cooking bowl) on the southern edge of Renmin Square. The collections are housed on several different floors arranged around an open, central hall from which all galleries are accessed by stair or lift. We only had limited time to explore the collections so focused on the impressive galleries of sculpture in stone, bronze and ceramic.

Chained Bear St Botolph's at Newbold on Avon (now virtually a suburb of Rugby) is one of the more interesting of the historic churches in this part of Warwickshire with a collection of monuments to the Boughton Family of various dates. The nave and tower date mostly from the 15th century rebuilding but the plain chancel was rebuilt in the early Victorian period. The interior is light with little Victorian stained glass, unusually confined to the nave aisles (three by Heaton, Butler & Bayne on the north side, one by Burlison & Grylls on the south). The main east window is mostly plain. The monuments are from distinct periods, two 15th century tombs in the south aisle have flat incised slabs with the images of Geoffrey Allesley and John Boughton with their respective wives. Also in the south aisle two wall monuments with small, rather folksy figures carved in relief to two generations of the Boughton family (of Little Lawford Hall). The largest of all is that to William Boughton & wife from 1716, a rather pompous Baroque piece with standing figures that dominates the chancel. This a church that certainly rewards the visitor but alas is normally kept locked, though there may be keyholder information or phonenumbers given (I called in on Heritage weekend when it was opened and seemed to be recieving a constant flow of visitors).
Thomas Boughton & Wife 1454 St Botolph's at Newbold on Avon (now virtually a suburb of Rugby) is one of the more interesting of the historic churches in this part of Warwickshire with a collection of monuments to the Boughton Family of various dates. The nave and tower date mostly from the 15th century rebuilding but the plain chancel was rebuilt in the early Victorian period. The interior is light with little Victorian stained glass, unusually confined to the nave aisles (three by Heaton, Butler & Bayne on the north side, one by Burlison & Grylls on the south). The main east window is mostly plain. The monuments are from distinct periods, two 15th century tombs in the south aisle have flat incised slabs with the images of Geoffrey Allesley and John Boughton with their respective wives. Also in the south aisle two wall monuments with small, rather folksy figures carved in relief to two generations of the Boughton family (of Little Lawford Hall).

Marshall Maurice de Saxe St Thomas's church in Strasbourg is a magnificent building built in the style of the German 'hall church' and combining late Romanesque elements (such as the two towers) with a largely late gothic interior. It is the cities main Protestant place of worship since having been converted to Lutheran use in 1524. Inside are many monuments, the most prominent of which is the late Baroque memorial to Marshall Maurice de Saxe by Jean Baptist Pigalle which dominates the apse of the church, taking the place of the altar!

16th Century Monument The Cathedrale St Etienne in Toul is justly famed for it's impressive late gothic west facade crowned by twin octagonal towers. It is otherwise a fairly compact building as cathedrals go, but remains the dominant landmark in the old town of Toul. The present cathedral was begun in 1221 and consists of a long nave and aisles followed by short apsed eastern limb with transepts. On the south side is a large 13th century cloister and there are Renaissance chapels to be found on either side of the nave. It lost it's role as mother church of the Diocese to the new cathedral in Nancy in 1777. The cathedral has been under restoration for some time; when I visited the north aisle and transepts were cordoned off and the apse completely blocked up with scaffolding, which made my initial first view of the interior rather dispiriting. The cloister also appeared to be inaccessible from within the cathedral but luckily I later found another entrance from the street. Despite the obvious signs of work, this is perhaps the quietest cathedral I've ever visited; the streets nearby were eerily empty (save for the odd rowdy group of children) and all appeared to be locked up (I tried all the facade doors and only the very last one yielded). I also had the interior entirely to myself (there must have been workmen in the scaffolding, but I saw no one). This can often enhance the serenity of such buildings, here though it gave it a somewhat lonely atmosphere.
Green Man Detail of the tomb in the north choir aisle at Rochester of Bishop Hamo de Hythe, who died 1352 and was also believed to have commissioned the superb Chapter Room doorway in the south east transept. Rochester Cathedral is not one of England's best known (being somewhat overshadowed by it's nearest diocesian neighbour Canterbury) but is nonetheless one of the most interesting and rewarding of our medieval churches. The present building was begun by Bishop Gundulf in the late 11th century though most of what we see today is 12th century Norman work in the nave and main facade combined with the 13th century Early English style eastern arm and transepts. The central tower and spire date only from 1904 but are based on the medieval original (having become ruined in the 18th century and unsuitably rebuilt in the 19th) The most significant feature is the elaborate 12th century west facade (altered by the large 15th century window and much restored by the Victorians) which retains it's fine sculpted central doorway, complete with damaged tympanum of Christ in majesty with rare but battered column figures (once like those at Chartres) below. Other treasures within includes a fine 13th century crypt, a wall painting of the Wheel of Fortune, several fine bishop's tombs and the exquisite late 14th century chapter-room doorway.

Bishop Bradfield's Tomb Tomb from c1300 in the south choir aisle at Rochester.The effigy is in low relief and very worn, the head missing altogether.

William of Perth's Tomb 13th century tomb of William of Perth, an object of veneration in medieval times in the north east transept of Rochester Cathedral.

John de Sheppey The 14th century tomb of Bishop John de Sheppey was completely hidden from view for several centuries having been walled up at some point after the Reformation (perhaps to protect it from the iconoclasm suffered by other monuments here). It was uncovered during Cottingham's restoration in the 1830s and found to preserve much of it's original colouring, though what we see now is largely a19th century recreation of the paintwork based on those remains.

Sir John de Swynnerton Tomb of Sir John de Swynnerton, bearing his cross-legged knight's effigy from c1274, on the south side of the chamcel at St Mary's, Swynnerton. The tomb beneath was opened at some stage in the early 19th century to reveal an almost intact body beneath the floor, but alas, contact with air after so many centuries soon reduced Sir John to a pile of dust!
