Despite the fact that gold is not found in abundance in Thailand, a wealth of gold artefacts have been produced.
The most popular use of gold was in the form of gold leaf applied to Buddha images to promote spiritual well-being.
The characteristic Thai art of overlaying black lacquer with gold leaf to create intricately detailed figures and scenes dates from the 17th and 18th centuries. The technique used by Thai artisans involved several delicate processes and required great skill.
Modern craft workers simulate this style with delicate gold paintwork of animals or dancers on black lacquer bowls and plates.
