About the Animal Artwork Royal Thai Supannahong
Supannahong, translated as the “Golden Swan” or the “Golden Phoenix”, is a mystical swan-like creature that is on the principle vessels of Thailand’s Royal Barge Procession. Our talented artist created this majestic Animal Artwork as a Siam memory of Supannahong. During the past Sukhothai period, the barges were used as battleships. After the war ended, the Majesty Kings preserved them for ceremonial events. In some Royal events, the barges appear in the Royal Kathin ceremony to house the King and his royal family for a river journey (the Buddhist festival that people bring new robes for monks). The barges have been existing for more than 700 years.
The original Supannahong barge is the highest rank in the Royal Barge Procession. Because it is only the King who can use it. In 1992, The World Ship Trust has presented it with the “Maritime Heritage Award”. As such, Thai Supannahong is an expression of beauty and historical significance. This Acrylic Abstract Painting is the most significant ancient Thai art that shows important cultural Thai heritage.
