According to the southern's folk take "Phra Suthon Manora" Kinnaree,
the heroine is a half-bird -half female creature birds in Himmavanta forest.
She is a very beautiful lady who always brings good luck to her residents.
The lanterns in the Northern region are unique and vary in shape and size.
The lantern dance is usually performed during the northern Yee Peng
Festival otherwise known as Loy Krathong Festival.
THE BATTLE OF MOKASAKDI
Thosakanth, the Ogre King of Lonka, commissioned his brother, Gumpakanth,
to fight King Rama and his brother, Laksaman, of Ayodhya. The scene
opens with duel between Laksaman and Gumpakanth. Gumpankanth
succeeds to impal Laksaman in his chest with his sanctified lance, The Mokasakdi.
The lance could not be removed and Laksaman suffered from great pain.
King Rama then ordered Hanuman, the monkey warrior to obtain the
magical antidote to save his brother.
SHORT STICK - LONG STICK FIGHT
The ability to use the short stick depends on the agility of the fencer who
has to take the offensive and always keep close to his adversary. On the
contrary, the fencer using the long stick has to back away, otherwise he
will not be able to use his long stick effectively.
ASPARA PLEASURABLE DANCE
Apsara or Apsorn is the ancient celestial nymph frequently seen in many
historical sites (the embossed carved figure showing one side of Apsara
can be seen on many walls of historical sites) such as The Phimai Stone
Sanctuary. Apsara dance is the dance performed by angels who ellegantly
and happily dance to give pleasure to the audience.
This performance symbolized the art of the ancient great drum, or Klong
Sabud Chai, which has existed in Thailand for centuries and was used
in the past during war times to signify greatness and give encouragement
to the warriors.
There are three distinct rhythms played on the Klong Sabud Chai which
are th Chiaperee (victory drum), Chai Dhitee (victory day) and Chana
Maan (victory over the enemy).
