Things Thai

New or Used: $64.90
Things Thai presents over 60 different items from Thailand along with extensive cultural and historical background information. Each is a collectible in its own right, and has some cultural relevance or a story to tell. Each object, be it a work of art, an emblem or something more everyday, represents an aspect of Thai life. Some items are devotional objects inspired by Theravada Buddhism, others are representative of the strong crafts tradition in the country; some have distinctive Thai design motifs, such as the kanok flame and vegetal motifs, others are simply pieces of clothing or jewelry--but all have a distinct bearing on Thai customs and culture. Each item is photographed separately and detailed text explains its historical importance and cultural significance.
