 the Partner Nation for 33rd Surajkund International Crafts Mela 2019

 

Partner Nation :

Thailand is the Partner Nation Country for the Year 2019.Thailand is a Southeast Asian country. It's known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises next to quiet canalside communities and the iconic temples of Wat Arun, Wat Pho and the Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew). Nearby beach resorts include bustling Pattaya and fashionable Hua Hin.

Thailand art and craft is woven in to the country's rich cultural heritage and is an inherent part of Thailand's history and national identity. With skills having been passed on for generations, Thailand art and craft is an enduring reflection of the Thai people's attention to detail and creativity.

Traditional Thai art and craft ranges from paintings and musical instruments to beautiful silk, silver wear, pottery, puppets, Khon masks, model warships, bronze wear, soap carving, sculptures, wood and stone carvings, ceramics and much more. Much of Thailand's art and craft is a contrast, with spectacular ancient gold gilded temples surrounded by modern urban environments and contemporary hotels and resorts enhanced with traditional Thai paintings, sculptures and woven materials for a more authentic atmosphere.
