Bangkok, September 2001
This is the door to two photographic tours of "Si Quey's Place": the unofficial name of Bangkok's Museum of Medical Forensic Science... so named because of its most famous prime tenant.
Si Quey (pronounced SEE OUEE) was executed (by hanging) for the crimes of multiple murders and even more multiple rapes. He was then mummified...to serve as a perpetual reminder to all potential miscreants. Today, this 'greeter' stands (in a glass box) at the top of the stairs, exhorting all to gaze at the contents of his museum.
