Thai national artist Thawan Duchanee has spent his life creating art that deeply reflects Buddhist philosophy. He is internationally renowned, and his art is masterful both for its intricacy and for its subtle portrayal of Buddhism. The book examines these themes within his art and guides the reader through some of Thawan's most interesting works. Often told in his own words, this book offers insights into Thawan's creative genius, explores his philosophy on the arts, examines his famous signature, and recounts his life story.

Russell Marcus is the author of Lao Proverbs and The Guide to Japanese Food and Restaurants.
