Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a unique sattaphan from the Lamphun area. A silhouette of mountains and moving clouds, at the middle is an angelic being praying and offering flowers. Lanna angels (Deva) are most often presented in full form, unlike those of central Thailand, which are usually half hidden in decorative motif. The nails used to fix the candles are made of square iron rods, of a type found in the 19th century. The Lanna Kingdom was founded in the 13th century. Its strength rested upontrading networks developed between areas of southern China, northern Laos, northern Burma and northern Thailand. It was annexed by Siam in 1892.

History of the Object
Placed before the Buddha image in the temple, the sattaphan represents the cosmological context of worship.
