Long Description:
I am certain that there is no alliterative reason why Krabi town has a giant crab on its Krabi river shoreline. I was tempted not to list this crab, as there was no plaque, and as such it may have crossed the line from sculpture to decoration, however, it is a symbol seen around the town, as it reflects the sea husbandry history of the town and province, and it is also immediately adjacent to a giant eagle (wm: WMBM0X), which does have a plaque and which reflects the goals of the town.

There is not a great deal to say about this crab(s). The protagonist of this visual story is a giant crab facing away from the Krabi river, situated on a small dais. Surrounding the giant, central crab are three much smaller crabs. This could represent the crab's family (do crabs have families?), or reflect the importance of the big crab, or something else. All of the crabs are black in colour and look rather ferocious.

The area in which these crabs are located is the Krabi River, as it runs past the city of Krabi. It is a pleasant spot in the cool evening. Krabi town and province are located on the west coast of the southern Thailand, ~700kms distant from Bangkok.
