Description

This glorious painting takes me immediately to one of my three favourite temples in Angkor, The Bayonne is really a special place and one of the world’s most extraordinary temples.

I remember buying this captivating painting at an exhibition of Theerapon’s work well over a decade ago and I am fascinated to see that he still uses it as his principal example of his Peaceful Smile collection on his website. On his first visit to the temples of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, Theerapon was deeply impressed by the grandeur of the statues but also by the strong emotions of peace and joyfulness radiating from the sculpted stones.

He comments “This collection is inspired by a trip to Cambodia. The thing I liked most is Angor Thom. It is architecture of Khmer which is called Bayonne. I like the unchanged surrounding and atmosphere, full of leaves and roots. The surface of architectures are full of moss, fern and lichens. It reflects time passing through the future. This collection I made it look serene by adding smiles to faces, showing mercy like the Buddha.”

Anyone who has visited the temples of Angkhor will have been particularly struck by the Bayonne and its many incredible and huge stone faces. Theeraporn adds a sense of mischief and humour with his cheeky monkey perched upon the ruins.
