About this Asian Wall Art Thai Male Angel
Our art expert created one-of-a-kind Asian wall art of Teppanom, or Devada. In Thai, it means an Angel Guardian. The artist depicted a portrait of the male angels in a traditional Thai style pattern with Wai position. Wai is a Thai way of greeting with respect. Indeed, the twin angels are one of the significant figures in Buddhist tradition.
From the cultural Thai Buddhist mythology, Teppanom had been living in heaven but came to Earth the first time when the Buddha reached enlightenment. They came to pay respect and celebrate the Buddha for his success. From then, the Teppanom angels in a pair has become the Buddha’s protector. In Thailand, it is very common to see a painting of them at the entrance in most of the Buddhist monasteries and Royal palaces.
This Thai style Asian painting is amazingly decorated with gold leaf on a lacquer background. Our specialty of ornamenting gold leaf on artwork is a very unique art technique, which inherited since the 13th century. In Thai, the art of applying gold leaf over the lacquer work is called “Lai Rod Nam or Long Ruk Pid Thong“. Royal Thai Art is not just a painting, but it is much of the Thai cultural heritage.
