A popular hanging artwork is the
fish mobile, made with fish folded from either
palm leaves called
from real paper money, or just from coloured or painted paper. The fish
(fig.) is said to represent
a barb, a kind of miniature carp, and is believed to bring prosperity (fig.).
Fish mobiles are usually referred to as
pla taphian sahn, and those made from
palm leaves are called
pla taphian sahn bai lahn.
