The Erawan Museum is well known for its giant three-headed elephant art sculpture as exterior. This is the first and biggest hand-carved sculpture in the world. It is considered an important tourist attraction as well as a holy shrine for many believers.
The interior of the museum is divided into three main floors according to the Hindu representation of the universe, which consists of Underworld, Earth, and Heaven. The two lower floors are located inside of the sculpture’s pedestal while the top floor is located in the belly of the elephant.
The first floor represents the underworld and contains precious artefacts from the founder, Lek Viriyaphant's personal collection. These include collections of tea sets, vases, and bowls, from the Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty. The underworld level also hosts the sculpture of the mythical being, a half Naga-half person, which was modeled after the belief that these beings guarded the precious treasures under the water.
The second floor representing the earth or the human world, this level houses three major types of art pieces and precious antiques and arts including Thai ceramics, stained glass, and European potteries.
