Buddhism discovers Doraemon

A mural at 700-year-old Wat Sampa Siw in Muang district of Suphan Buri has been attracting crowds recently. It is probably the only temple in Thailand where you can see the popular Doraemon cartoon character appearing in scenes of the Lord Buddha's past lives and the afterlife. More here

What does Doraemon see in the inferno? Or in Heaven?
Certainly not Nobi Nobita, nor Minamoto Sizuka, but stories of Buddhas.
And of course, this painting doesn’t have a history as long as the 700-year-old temple.
