  pad yot (kreuang soong)

 

Cambodia

Kreuang soong are fans, similar to a talapat or pad yot, but attached to an approximate two meter long handle. They symbols of royalty or honour, and are used either stationary or carried around in processions, such as in royal ceremonies. They are usually in the form of lotus buds (fig.), often kranok-shaped (fig.).

 

These pictures from the Cambodian Grand Palace in Phnom Penh, show a model of a royal procession (photo above) as well as real, life-size kreuang soong standing in a palace corridor (picture on the right).
