  fluorescent paintings on black velvet

 

Thailand

Surely not for everyone's taste are the fluorescent paintings on black velvet, usually made with a mixture of bright colours. They are typically sold as souvenirs on street markets and classic themes include Thai village life, picturesque landscapes, elephants, and figures from mythology. In Thai they are called phaap sih sathon saeng bon phah kammayih.
