Art: Golden Wall Art in Laos
This is an incredible simple painting, and is one even a child could do. The contrast of the gold against the burgundy is striking and the texture of the paper underneath is due to it being handmade. One thing I adored about Laos were the intricate murals inside the many Buddhist temples. Entire stories were depicted inside temples through simple paintings of small gold figures on a dark background. The gold reflects the light, catching your eye and your attention. This painting is about 1 metre tall and survived the rest of my two months backpacking around South-East Asia wrapped up in a thin wicker tube.
