The is one piece of a full series of 12 pieces. This series of paintings were made by Kanaid with inspiration from the Songkarn Festival at Isan(northeastern region of Thailand). They were made with mix media (sequins, beads, gold threads, gauze pieces, oil paint) on canvas. The figures and the materials used are clear representations of traditional Thailand, to be composed in a conceptual way with vibrant colours of red-and-green. According to Kanaid, his inspiration was from the “sand pagoda and [my wish] to represent for the lord Buddha at Isan festival which held every year from 13-15 April in northeast Thailand…sand pagoda for Buddha will be built in the belief that this will give them[people] happiness in both present and next lives…, the elephant represents national animal of Thailand, as well as my name in Hindi that means Ganesha that means god of art.” (To be sold as a full series of 12 pieces at USD 30000, all 12 pieces were stretched)
