Salak Yom Festival: Trees of Gifts from Thailand

Things to do

Made on site by villagers from Lamphun, Thailand, these offering trees are inspired by a colourful practice of the ethnic Yaung women every September. The trees are traditionally decorated with everyday objects like lowers, vegetables and fruits to earn merit for the next life.

Part of the special exhibition 'Enlightened Ways: The Many Streams of Buddhist Art in Thailand'.
