Phuket Property: Land art made from the heart

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Phuket has participated in a project entitled ‘The King’s Land Art Project’ using Niwet Silpa, or ‘Land Art’ inspired by nine different national artists and erected in nine provinces around Thailand.

Each of the nine designs across the Kingdom represent His Majesty’s talents and projects and range in size from four to 20 rai.

The Phuket project was taken over by At Panta Resort after the original location in Ayathuya withdrew its bid.

The exhibit in Phuket, designed by Mr Tawee Ratchaneekorn, is the eighth part of the iconic Chronicle of the Land Project.

Nationally renowned artist Tawee Ratchaneekorn completed The Chronicle of the land No 8, on four rai of land at At Panta Phuket Resort.

Inspired by the reverence for His Majesty the King throughout Thailand, the composition is formed in the shape of a compass and is comprised of Pho leaves, a heart-shaped leaf, which represent Dhamma and the virtues of the King, pointing outwards in many directions.

The work reflects His Majesty’s royal speech in which he said, “We shall reign with righteousness for the welfare of the Siamese.”

The design team managed to gather a group of around 300 volunteers from the Thalang area, made up of resort staff, TV representatives, local teachers and school children, members of various rescue foundations, staff from public organizations and local business people, to build the project over five days.

The completed works used over 4,000 bricks and 700 square meters of grass during its installation and was launched with the assistance of the Tha Rakbankered Foundation along with the CSR Club, Humming House company and the Thai PBS.

The Land Art is free to view by all visitors, everyday from now until December 31, open from 9am to 6pm.
