What / Why :

“Arts of the Kingdom” — a magnificent exhibition of exquisite but rarely seen traditional Thai crafts reflects the decades of work initiated under The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques or the SUPPORT Foundation under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.

The SUPPORT project was launched in 1970 by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand and was established as a foundation on 21 July 1976.

The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques or SUPPORT Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the Thai art and cultural heritage and craftsmanship and has enabled farmers to earn supplementary income during the period after the annual harvest.

First launched in 1992 to celebrate the auspicious occasion of the 60 th birthday anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen, the Arts of the Kingdom exhibition was last held to mark the auspicious occasions of the Diamond Jubilee or Sixtieth Anniversary Celebrations of His Majesty the King’s accession to the throne and His Majesty the King’s 80 th birthday in December 2007.

The highlights of the Arts of the Kingdom exhibition currently being held at the Ananta Samakom Throne Hall at Dusit Palace include the awe-inspiring Suphannapetra golden junk – a masterpiece handcrafted by the artisans of the SUPPORT Foundation and presented to Her Majesty Queen Sirikit on Her Majesty’s 72 nd birthday anniversary, the Phra Mahajanaka golden junk studded with precious gems and embellished with beetle wing collage, as well as several new additions to the collection.
