  krathong sai floral creations

 

Thailand

Sometimes, the outside of a krathong sai (fig.), a kind of krathong used in the Loi Krathong Sai festival (fig.) in Tak, is fashioned in the form of an intricate flower by attaching ornamental parts.

 

These parts are usually created of neatly folded banana leaves or coloured paper, while some krathong sai are adorned with additional ornaments, resulting in highly crafted creations that take part is contests for the most elaborate krathong sai. The ka-lah in this intricate one has been elevated on a base similar to a usual krathong (fig.) and is topped with a phum dokmai (fig.).
