Thai artisans work against the clock, scratching, moulding and shaping intricate clay sculptures that will adorn the funeral pyre of Thailand's revered former King Bhumibol Adulaydej. The sculptures, of animals, gods and mythical creatures, will decorate the spectacular 50 metre (165 foot) pyre that is set to provide a final stage for Bhumibol, who died last October.
