Magical Triangle

It's not often that you see a triangular incantation cloth on the ceiling of a Bangkok taxi. They're usually square or rectangular like the ones surrounding the bright red one. Covered with mystical charts, sacred writing, and age-old symbols, these magical cloths help the driver to feel secure as they're believed to bring luck and protect the cabbie, the car, and the passengers from harm. And in this case, the driver is trying to invoke all things good for Thailand.
