Story Behind the Art: Khun Pen
Making lotus panels from recycled teak has been done for generations in my family. Originally my elders made the panels as window screen guards to keep out snakes and small animals as many people had no glass. The designs were drawn from ancient memory and depict mainly the lotus bud or flower which is a sign of purity in the Buddhist sense. We only use recycled wood planks from old structures that are being replaced with more modern construction. All work is done in a communal setting as there are many stages done by hand; as such panels are not of a perfect size or thickness. This is not a regular job as we have to tend the fields also. It is a way to do something together and make extra currency
