A Chiang Rai Artists, Suwit Jaipom, has unveiled a portrait of the late HM King Rama IX, that he has recently created to mark the second anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s passing.

At his studio in Ban Pang Lao in the capital district of Chiang Rai, Suwit Jaipom, the president of ArtBridge Chiang Rai and local artist, has created portraits of His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. He also displayed his new work, a charcoal drawing of the late monarch.

The artist said he began the portrait earlier this week and intended to complete it by October 13, when the nation honors the revered King two years after he passed away.

According to Mr Suwit, he has chosen charcoal made from grape vines as the medium for this drawing while the paper used. The work is set to be displayed to the public for the first time at an exhibition in Chiang Mai.

The artist added that he has named his latest work “Father of the Land” due to his belief that His Majesty will continue to be called ‘father’ by all Thais. In the drawing, King Bhumibol is depicted as smiling as if he is giving his people an assurance that he will always be with them.

King awards rescuers of Mu Pa football team | The Thaiger

His Majesty the King has awarded 187 people, including 115 foreigners, with The Most Admirable Order of the Direkgunabhorn for the rescue of the Mu Pa football team last July.

The announcement in the Royal Gazette reads the government recognises that those people who helped those in peril performed good deeds and deserved to be honored.

They will be granted the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn.

The Most Admirable Order of the Direkgunabhorn was established by King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) on July 22, 1991 to be bestowed upon those who have rendered devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand.

The title Direkgunabhorn (ดิเรกคุณาภรณ์) roughly translates as “Noble order of abundance and quality.”
