Khao Khanaab Nahm (เขาขนาบน้ำ) in Krabi (กระบี่) are two mountains that are roughly a hundred meters tall, separated by the Krabi River and located at the mouth of the river and the entrance to the city. The twin mountains, located in a dense mangrove forest, are home to some amazing caves worth exploring. In the main cave, some human skeletons have been found. They are presumed to belong to some early dwellers, who settled in the area and perished in the cave when they were cut off by an inundation. The cave today displays some of edifices of earlier cave dwellers, as well as some human bones. The eye catcher in the cave is the huge skull and bones of a giant human or yak (ยักษ์), whose remains are entwined by the skeleton of a large serpent, said to be that of a phayanaag (พญานาค), i.e. the mythological ‘King of Snakes’. Khao Khanaab Nahm, which literally means ‘Mountains Flanked by Water’, is regarded as a landmark and symbol of Krabi, and natural gateway to the city. The mountain on the eastern side of the river can only be reached by boat. According to an ancient southern Thai myth a lethal duel between a giant and a huge snake-like creature once took place here, in order to obtain the love of a beautiful princess. The two creatures both died in the battle and turned into the two mountains, while their swords fell. In 1872, local villagers unearthed two ancient swords at Ban Na Luang (บ้านนาหลวง) and presented those to the then governor. The two single edged swords were placed crossing each other at a cave in Khao Khanaab Nahm. Later, the crossed swords, depicted against the background of the Indian Ocean and Mt. Phanom Benjah (พนมเบญจา), with a height of 1,397 meters the tallest mountain in the province, became the provincial emblem of Krabi and remains so to this day. For the 2018 Biennale that took place in Krabi, the Chinese artist Tu Wei-Cheng (涂維政) created the skeleton of a more than 6 meter tall giant human-like creature entangled by a 12 meter long snake, representing the protagonists of the ancient myth, displayed as if their bones had been excavated in the cave underneath the eastern mountain. To promote this work of art and to publicize the Biennale, a fake news report was released in which it was claimed that the skeletons had factually been excavated and that this was evidence which confirmed the real existence of the mythical man and the authenticity of this legend, with the explanatory signboards in the cave claiming that this is the most important archaeological find in Thailand in the past few years. With his work, that was installed permanently in the cave, the artist wants to raise the discussion around archaeological findings and stating that the installation over time would become almost realistic due to natural deterioration by dust, earth, and weather, thus aging the work and making it part of the local environment and history. As such, Tu Wei-Cheng wants to raise awareness of the sometimes fine line between the factual and the fictional, the real and the imagined, the material and spiritual, and again the immanent and transcendent.
