  sarai ruang peung

 

Thailand

Sarai ruang peung, literally ‘seaweed  honeycomb’ is an architectural term for a decorative part, attached over doorways.

 

It consists of triangular pieces of carved wood, that seem to droop like jelly from the lintel on which it is attached, and that is reminiscent of honeycombs (fig.) that hang from a tree branch (fig.).
