This bench resides in the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Bangkok, Thailand. There are several benches of a similar contemporary design in the display rooms, which visitors can use for resting while contemplating the art around them, or which can be admired as art themselves.

In March this year, we visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Bangkok, Thailand. One of the unusual exhibits that we liked was a group of bronze sculptures created in 2010 by the artist Anupong Chantorn, called Animal-man Family. This is one of the items in the collection.
We recently visited the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Bangkok, Thailand. One of the most stunning exhibits, created in 2007 by Vachara Prayulkam, was Body-Mind-Peace. This exhibit is the first thing you see at the top of the escalator from the ground floor.
The main sculpture grouping, made of fiberglass, contains a life-sized black man holding an almost-life-sized puppet of Adolf Hitler in uniform. Directly behind him, facing in the opposite direction, is a life-sized white man. The two men appear identical physically, as well as in dress and demeanor; both are wearing a mask. In contrast to the pure black and white of the “humans,” the “skin” of the puppet is the ashen gray of death.
On the wall is a description of the artist’s concept in creating the figures.
Along the opposite wall is a line of display cases, each holding a puppet that, conceptually, could be switched with the Adolph Hitler puppet. These puppets represent the world famous figures Mahatma Gandhi, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Ho Chi Minh, Winston Churchill, and Saddam Hussein.
