Beautiful vintage hand crafted relief of the Thai/Indian epic 'Ramakien'. Teak wood relief and stand. The Ramayana epic was first told on the Indian subcontinent many hundreds of years ago but has since spread from there as far away as Indonesia. It is the legend of the hero Rama and the beautiful princess Sita, and of the fight between gods and demons. A fight of good Vs evil. The Siamese or Thai version of the story is called Ramakien. Large parts of this Thai version of the Thai Ramakien have been written by King Rama II, who before his succession to the throne was a poet and writer.
