The abbot of the City Pillar Shrine in Chiang Mai has ordered local artists to alter the angels painted on the shrine’s walls by swapping their traditional swords with modern weapons.

“In the ancient time, these angels were equipped with ancient weapons like spears, swords, and knives,” said the abbot, Phra Kru Suwattana Mettakhun. “But we decided to give them M16 rifles, M79 grenade launchers, handguns, and grenades, so they can have diverse choice of weapons.”

“These are the weapons that are up to date,” the abbot said.
