Undoubtedly one of the most stunning works Thawan has created across his career, The Strength of The Buddha is certainly clear for all to see. I just adore this painting. Yet the camera in a well lit room makes the painting somehow brighter and more glowing than it appears in more shaded environs, where the Kalpapruek tree behind is a slightly more subtle backdrop, the elephants’ eyes are somehow more piercing and protective of their Master, and the gilded surfaces are far less reflective than perhaps it shows in the photograph.

I think it’s a stunning example of how the mood of Thawan’s paintings change in the light they find themselves. Put the work into a very light environment and as shown the colours flood out. The surface work is absolutely amazing when viewed close up. A truly stunning piece of work.
