The detail of the carving is spectacular as well as the creative design. The framing and background material make the dragon stand out.

Miss Boonnak's skill in producing "Duel of Elephants" is a superb example of greatness in the difficult art of repoussee (a form of metal sculpture that produces a dramatic three-dimensional effect). As an avid collector of fine elephant art, I am delighted to display Miss Boonnak's masterpiece in my residential gallery and would recommend that others check out her handsome and impressive work. -- Mike Thompson, Florida USA
The Boonnak's home witnessed the birth of silver crafting in Thailand at the turn of the 20th century. King Chulalongkorn was patron of the arts and settled Burmese craftsmen the area.
