Folk Painting of River Goddess
Depicting Phra Mae Nam Kongka, or Goddess/Mother of the Ganges, this painting gives evidence of the strong influence India had on Thai culture. The Thai festival of Loy Kratong honors this deity. She is mounted on a large fish representing Phra Anon, the fish deity. Very colorfully rendered in gouache, pen and paint on heavyweight drawing paper, this has an added surprise on the back of a drawing of the animals leaving the city due to urban development.
