Why are Zebras in Thailand

Why are Zebras in Thailand
I have taken some photos of a herd of Zebras in Thailand, not live ones but little small statues of Zebras. It appears to me they are using some for Buddhist Religious Shines.

I then spot on next to one of the Buddhist devotion monuments, these are located on the majority of properties in Thailand, so not difficult to find or observe. Although the Zebra is a new one for me, I have never seen Zebras in Thailand.



This photo has Zebras and Chickens; I do see Chickens in Thailand.



This one has some Elephants, and I do believe sometime in the past there were Elephants roaming wild in Thailand.



Here is the street corner where I found a Herd of Zebras for Sale. These Buddhist Devotion Monuments, maybe are called Iconography, although I am not sure this term applies correctly.

At the top of this Blog Post is a typical type of Buddhist Devotion setting and easy to find, I am not positive what they call this or the proper name is in English.

I do know one thing, I would have love to had been the person who invented Incense on a stick, these type of Religious Shrines are keeping the Incense factories rich.

Why are the Thailand people using a Zebra for this Buddhist Shrine?
