Like a medallion from an ancient Hindu temple, Om appears on a wall sculpture by Thai artisan Somyot Sawasdee. He crafts the round wall panel by hand with recycled paper and cement, and finishes it with green and gold paint, creating the illusion of an aged bronze piece. The plaque features a hook on the back for hanging.
In Hindu tradition, Om (also Ohm or Aum) is a sacred incantation to be intoned at the beginning and end of a reading of the Vedas, as well as prior to any prayer or mantra.

Somyot is a dedicated artisan concerned with the environment. He often offers training sessions at his workshop to teach the special techniques needed to produce environmentally-friendly art from recycled materials. He uses these sessions to help cultivate a respect for the environment among younger artisans and encourages them to sell the products they create at the workshop training sessions. He also employs assistants to help with the crafting of his artwork. His older sister helps him with the accounting.
