Badge: Hand painted by Living Legend Thanin Chuenhai of Thailand
This badge is very very special to me. This art is called Lai Rod Nam. It was painted by the Living Legend Thanin Chuenhai.
That's me wearing the badge as soon as it was done, with him. He is such a chubby, cute, love-able person!!! He hand painted this esp. for me. Guess what, he wrote my name in this and gifted it to me. Since my entire name wouldn't fit into that badge, he wrote half of my name 'Bhusha' in the painting, within a flag like design in the lower half. Its written in Thai language!!!
Lai Rod Nam is an gold leaf hand painting craft of Thailand to depict scenes of the Hindu epic Ramayana, originally done in the temples of Thailand. Its usually done on black lacquer and rarely in red lacquer. Its done by painting the lacquer with a yellow gummy paint on areas that have to be left black and then letting it dry and then a coat of lacquer is given atop and gold leaf is applied over it. On washing it with water, the gold leaf on painted areas come off, leaving the unpainted part with glittering gold work!!!
