Dragon at Doi Sutep, Chiang-Mai

PUA_ART_2018_1.jpg

Title

Dragon at Doi Sutep, Chiang-Mai

Description

A diptych of two small transfer prints on wood depicting two red dragons on a blue background. The dragons are based on a sculpture of naga (mythical serpent-like creatures) at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a Theravada Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai province, Thailand. They resemble the Pacific Univeristy mascot, Boxer. One dragon, whose head is at the bottom of the diptych, appears to be devouring the other dragon, whose neck and head extend from his mouth. The pieces are signed by the artist with the note, "hand-transferred 2014." The diptych was donated by Dr. Timothy Choy in honor of Gerald C. Yoshida, chairman of the Pacific University Board of Trustees.
