Thai Puppets and Khon Masks

Thai Puppets and Khon Masks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The elaborately fashioned and guilded masks worn by dancers performing in the popular Ramayana dance drama are one of the enduring symbols of Thai culture. Today, practitioners of these art forms are becoming scarce, and the finely crafted puppets in particular are hard to find. This book unites for the first time puppets and masks from some of the finest collections, and will help to make a unique facet of Thai culture more widely known.
