The site in the Cherngtalay-based At Panta resort is the eighth place in Thailand to benefit from the incredible pieces created by renowned Thai artist, Tawee Rajaneekorn.
The Phuket Land Art was inspired by Mr Tawee’s belief that the King’s prestige spreads throughout Thailand.
To reflect Mr Tawee’s vision, he has created an art piece in a compass-like shape consisting of pho leaves that point outwards in many directions
The pho leaf is also a heart-shaped leaf which represents Dharma teachings and the virtues of the King.
It also somewhat reflects His Majesty’s royal speech, “We shall reign with righteousness for the welfare of the Siamese.”
The ninth and final piece will be installed in Thailand, just in time for the king’s birthday on December 5.
The Phuket Land Art is open to the public daily 8am-5pm, until December 31.
