A Treasure Box
It’s getting colder here and I really miss the hot weather in Thailand.
A couple of days ago I went to a Japanese garden called Youkoukan and took some pictures. I will update my another blog with some pictures of the place soon. Please keep an eye on my another blog!
Well, today’s entry is still about the Thai convention. This one is my competition piece for a free theme. I received a prize award at the competition with this box.
This box has a story which I made for the box. A Roman marchant found an old map. He learned about the map and realized that it was a treasure map!
To discover the treasure he started going on a voyage.
It was really tough for him to discover the treasure, but he found where the treasure was.
However, if he wanted to get it, he had to fight against the golden sea dragon. He was a guard for the treasure.
Here is the treasure! A wonderful piece of ruby pendant with lovely pearls!
Painting follow the story on the box was really fun!
I met a painter from Hong Kong. Since she watched my competition piece very carefully, I spoke to her. When I explained about my story with the box, she loved it. I also told the same story to my Australian painting friend, Ingrid with whom I went to Thailand, she also really loved my story.
Before I received the prize award from H.E. the Privy Councillor of Thai government, I explained how and why I created this piece to him. He listened to my story and when I opened the box and showed him the inside of the box, he was just surprised at the inside painting. He told me that he really loved the story, the box painting both outside and inside. I was extremely happy.
This is the certificate for my award at the Thai conventin.
