  Postal Garuda

 

Thailand

Postal Garuda, as depicted on the doors of the General Post Office in Bangkok (fig.), holding a post horn.

 

The building, finished in 1940, is built in the Neoclassic and Functionalist styles, and its gable is also decorated with two large Garuda figures (fig.), reminiscent of the image used on the first Siamese Airmail postage stamps (fig.).
