Details

Thiva Boonnak finds inspiration in the Rammakien, the Thai version of the Ramayana, as she crafts this aluminum repoussé panel with fierce detail. The scene pertains to the chapter in which the evil giant Kumpakan pretends to cut off the water of Ganges River that supplied Rama's camp. He asked for his ladies-in-waiting to bring him flowers growing by the riverside and after casting a spell, he began to grow and grow. He grew so much he just had to lie down across the river, and thus cut off the water. Hanuman, the Monkey King, was sent to investigate what had happened. After impersonating several maids and transforming himself into a hawk, Hanuman reported his findings to Rama, who promptly asked him to break the spell. Weak from the incantation, Kumpakan was unable to fight Hanuman and escaped to Krung Lanka, where the demon king held Sita, Rama' wife, captive. The panel is framed in noble rain tree wood.

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.

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

"Magnificent artistry"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Miss Boonnaks 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 Boonnaks masterpiece in my residential gallery and would recommend that others check out her handsome and impressive work. -- Mike Thompson, Florida USA
