Antique Thai Calendar Paintings

June 24, 2016 1 min read

The logic of the twelve Thai Zodiac signs follows the logic of Chinese zodiac signs and defines a person’s fortune based on the  ‘year’ or birth rather than the ‘month’ of birth.

And as is often the case,this cultural significant meme is best represented through its classical art.

Below are images of prints of some Antique Thai Calendars.

The features of the characters &  their costumes, the shading styles and the colors used in the paintings are all uniquely associated with the geography and its history.
