Hello Susanne, No not the tower of Babel, but it is a pratat or Chedi that is at the Buddhist temples here in Thailand.  It is a image that reminds the Buddhist of the teachings of Buddha and many times they will say there is a relic of Buddha inside it.  I used this image to talk about the Buddhist system of religion and how the creator entered into a man mad system of karma and reincarnation to set them free from the cycle of karma.  Buddhist here don't really think of good karma, it is all about bad karma.  They have no hope in this system and I use the Buddhist hell, that has 8 levels and the Buddhist heaven that has 6 levels and the levels of earth to explain how Christ came into this man made system. In the middle part there are 4 stories about the life of Jesus. How he has power of death, power over the spirits, power over nature and power over our needs.  I use this painting often here in Thailand to talk to Thai folks about the creator and how He wants them to come back to him and why he made them.  Hope that helps. Thanks for asking.
