Buddha Park is a sculpture park located 25 km southeast from Vientiane, Laos in a meadow by the Mekong River. The Xieng Khuan park was built in 1958 by Luang Pu Bunleua Sulilat. He was a priest-shaman, myth-maker, mystic and sculpture artist with a large following in Laos and later in Thailand. There are more than 200 sculptures in the park and most of them face away from the Mekong. The statues are made of cement and are ornate, and sometimes bizarre in design. The statues appear to be centuries old, though they are not.

Squids are fascinating creatures that reside in the ocean. Squid have a large head, 8 arms with suckers, 2 longer feeding tentacles, a beak, 2 large eyes, and 2 hearts. A squid’s skin can flash up to 50 hypnotic patterns. Squids use changing body color patterns to signal each other. The size of a squid can vary from area to area. Some squids are just about 24 inches long, while some can grow up to 40 feet in length. Squid’s body shape and water-jet propulsion system makes it the fastest swimmer of all animals without backbones.
