Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is the only object of its kind we have in the museum of that age. It is beautifully crafted.

History of the Object
In the past it was used during the Songkraan Festival, when water was poured on the most important Buddha statues of the temple. It was also used for the initiation of monks. Water ccould be poured into a gutter on top of the beam and it then ended up at the front on the novice during the initiation to become a monk.
