Why this is a
Masterpiece

Because of the marking of the frontier between Siam and Laos, this stele has great historical importance.

History of the Object
This is the famous stele of Dano Say. It was discovered by Maha Ouphahat Boun Khong, Viceroy of Luang Prabang . It commemorates the treaty of 1560 which marked the frontier between the Siamese Kingdom of Ayuthaya and the Lao Kingdom of Lane Xang. It is written in Laotian on one side and in Khmer on the other, which tends to prove that even that recently Khmer was still the “diplomatic” language of the Thai Kingdoms. The stele was in a bad condition when discovered and has been very poorly restored as well.
