MATERIAL Cross-stitched technique on brass sheets
This set of brooches was inspired by the royal statements of Their Royal Majesties, King Bhumibhol and Queen Sirikit of Thailand. The Queen once stated,
“If His Majesty the King were the river, I would be the forest.
The forest that always stays nearby the river. If His Majesty constructs the reservoir, I would afforest.”
These brooches betray the shape of Thailand map and using Thai textile patterns that Her Majesty revived to show her determination in helping and supporting Thai people in order to lighten the load of His Majesty’s works.
