Thailand

This statue, in front of the 314 meters tall Maha Nakhon Building (fig.) in Bangkok, depicts the multi-headed elephant Erawan rising from the Ocean of Milk. He is the symbol of the clouds and the mount of the deity Indra, and they together are part of the capital city's coat of arms (fig.).
