The middle level portrays the human world. The design is mixed with eastern and western influences. The ceiling is made up of stained glass which is commonly seen in catholic churches. The world map and zodiac signs are illustrated on the stained glass. The artist behind the stained glass is the German artist Jacob Schwarzkopf. There are four pillars in the middle layer, and each pillar is tin plated. Each pillar represents the four major religions of the world, which are Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam (still under construction) The stairways to the belly of the elephant, which is the “stairways to heaven” is an art work made up of broken pieces of Benjarong pottery.
And finally, the Tavatimsa Heaven is located deep inside the belly of the elephant. This represents the second heaven where Lord Indra dwells. There are several Buddha images, some shimmering with gold. Below the replica of the Phra Phutta Sihing, you find the walking Buddha status which contains bits of relics of the Lord Buddha.
