Wow - these are awesome. Thanks for the link. I always wondered what those half-bird creatures I always saw in Thai restaurants were.

We have these in Australia. This should help with the sponsorship: Wednesday, February 1, 2006 "Parts of project Himmapan are to be used for Conrad Bangkok Hotel project". I like this post Gator.

After finding a couple cool things, I tried to find more info on Google and there doesn't seem to be much out there. maybe I'll have to actually look at some dead trees for more. Great post and a really neat site.
