Anniversary Art Series - May 2018

Anniversary Art Series - Lao Life
Artist Series:  VM/Lao life
In this month's Anniversary Art Series image, elements of life in Laos are the focus here.  It can be a challenge to come up with items and scenes that are most prevalent in Laos as there is so much to choose from.

However, looking at this image, many people who know Lao culture or who have visited Laos, can probably name each individual element.  Try listing each one before reading the complete list below.

Let us know in the comments on what other elements that you think should have been included to help represent Lao life.

Artist Series:  VM/Lao life
Primary Style:  Digital illustrations
Elements: (from left to right)
  • Top row - mortar and pestle, papaya, red chillis, ethnic minority couple, tuk tuk, pile of rice, rice hut, house, Buddha
  • Middle row - woman spinning silk thread, examples of Lao textiles, bamboo rice container, fighting cockerels, farmer working the rice fields
  • Bottom row - muay boxing, monk receiving offerings from a layfollower, man playing the khene, water buffalo
  • Background - Buddhist flower mandalas

For 2018, celebrates its 20th anniversary.  To commemorate the occasion, 3 artists/graphic designers were tasked to provide 4 Lao themed images.  You'll see each artist's interpretation of the same theme.  Each month, we'll be showcasing a new image that they created.  We hope you enjoy them.  Let us know which ones are your favourites!
