Wat Poramayikawas - Mural Paintings of Thailand Series $12.67

Temple Mural Paintings at Wat Poramayikawas

Mural Paintings of Thailand Series

The Mural Paintings of Thailand Series is a very beautiful series of large sized, 8¼ x 11 inch, hard cover books showing and explaining the best of the temple mural paintings in Thailand. The murals have been photographed in glorious colour, section by section, and next to these colour plates the story being shown is explained in both Thai and English. These books are both collectors pieces and well done academic works.

There are many temples where interesting examples of mural paintings of the Nonthaburi tradition can be seen. Two of these of the Ayudhya period are at Wat Prasat and Wat Chompuweg. Another example, dating from the Rattanakosin period, is at Wat Khanun. These mural paintings testify to the continuity of the tradition. The mural paintings of Wat Poramayikawas, however, are interesting as instances of the innovative blend of traditional Thai painting and western art. Presented here in this book, these murals paintings differ from those of previous periods in the use of the techniques of landscape painting, perspective, and light and shade, etc..

The mural paintings at Wat Poramayikawas are masterpieces. They were executed by Than Tong, or Mom Chao Pravij Jumsai, whose skills were generously praised by Prince Narisaranuwattiwongse, himself a great master. Since Than Tong was artist, architect and interior decorator for this temple, the mural paintings and the decoration here are a wonderful example of the total harmony of design.
