EXPERIENCE WOODC ARV I N G
Woodcarving Thai woodcarving, called Kruang Mai Cham Lak, is considered one of the country’s traditional art forms. Done in an ancient artistic style, carvings are divided into three types: bas-relief, deep-relief and round-relief. Bas-relief has flat carvings only on the front of the wood, with few curves. Deep-relief carvings have three dimensions: depth, width, and height. Examples of round-relief carvings include Buddha sculptures, which have been carved on every side. Since wood decays easily compared to cement or brick, Thai wood art is very rare, and a work can take years to complete, requiring high levels of patience and artistic skill by the carver. Today, skilled craftsmen are rarely found, and few are willing to become disciples.
