Details

Narrow trails lead through clouded forest in a scene of exceptional beauty. Walking together across the landscape, elephants of all ages join a pachyderm migration. Revered icons in Thai culture, elephants are symbols of royal power, essential features of Buddhist art and architecture, and spiritual mentors. Thiva Boonnak portrays them in glowing repoussé. She applies pitch to a sheet of aluminum and embosses the motifs by hand. Once the work is engraved, she heats the sheet to remove the pitch and plunges it into a bath of boiling acid. She then washes it in a tamarind fruit solution and polishes it. The repoussé panel is affixed to a frame of rain tree wood.

"What a fantastic piece!"

I have traveled all over the world, but I could not carry home things like this with me. I have one wall in my hallway dedicated to elephants....this most impressive piece stands out among the others.
