Sinxay Memorable Quotations #5

This is another amazing illustration by Nick Bowen. I researched and researched and there are very few illustrations, old or new of the use of hanglins. And almost all of the illustrations are of monks who are being ordained. Nick and I had to work closely together to try to make this as authentic as possible. But at the same time, who knows for sure, so we followed the text as closely as possible. Sinxay’s two brothers attended and I decided they had transformed themselves into having regular human bodies for the ceremony. To indicate who they were we added reliefs on the chairs that showed their real bodies, be it a conch shell for Sangthong, or an elephant’s head for Siho.
