No one knows why it was built or what it was for, but Pratamnak Hill residents want what appears to be the foundation for a sculpture or equipment removed before someone gets seriously hurt.
The mystery installation showed up on the sidewalk opposite Pattaya Provincial Court years ago and never developed into anything. Some speculated it was to be the base of a sculpture, or perhaps the base for some heavy equipment.
Now, however, it’s a dangerous eyesore. The 20-centimeter by one meter concrete base is about 15 cm. high and is surrounded by large crews and pipes and has become trash receptacles.
People supposedly have tripped over the contraption many times.
Locals don’t know why it was built or what the intended purpose was, but it clearly has amounted to nothing and they want city hall to remove it.
