All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small
I always keep a look out for display art when I travel and the Thais seem to be particularly good at it. On my recent visit, I was particularly impressed by the colourful animals on display at the entrance of Siam Paragon, Bangkok. Who would have thought of a purple leopard with matching spots of lavender, a green and yellow deer with a textured honey-comb body, a green and white sheep with white spiral body prints and a green and blue zebra with stripes put together by little poms poms.
My favourites - the leopard and the zebra, both for its bold and beautiful colour combination and the fine workmanship that goes into every spot and stripe.
