About this Thotsakan Thai Art

This Thotsakan painting is a caption from the famous scene of Ramakien story from Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok. Our talented Thai artist painted Thotsakan marching to battle with his mighty troops. In Thai literature, the Ramakien, Thotsakan ( ทศกัณฐ์ ) is one of the most important characters. According to the story, He is the great King of demons in Lanka. He has ten heads to represent his incredible knowledge, and body with green skin. Moreover, he has twenty arms and possesses gazillions of weapons. 

The Thai version of Ramakien story was firstly written in the 18th century, during the period of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. The Ramakien epic ( รามเกียรติ์ ) is an important masterpiece to represent traditional Thai culture. However, the very original story originated from Hindu epic, Ramayana. In Hindu version, Thotsakan has a different name, called Ravana. He also has a great ability to shapeshift to be any form at will. 

The depiction of Thotsakan has been a strong influence in Thai art and culture. For instance, a large statue of Thotsakan is established at the entrance of the Wat Phra Kaew within the Grand Palace complex as a door guardian. If you are looking for a unique masterpiece to symbolize Thailand, our beautiful cultural Thai painting is the perfect piece for your collection.
