ELEPHANTS & MAHOUTS
Elephants with designs in the show are Boon Rod, Ging Gaow, Kam Lai Tong, Noppakhao, and Yod Yeam from the Ayutthaya Royal Elephant Kraal as well as Sela from Kandang Gajah Camp at Borobudur Temple in Indonesia. The participation of the elephants and their painting skills in general are the direct result of the hard work and dedication of each elephants’ mahout.
