most admired treasures, showing off many intrinsic values of Thai art. For example, the beautiful
elaborate fretwork designs of the puppets, meticulously carved by master craftsmen can be
manipulated to portray all kinds of mood and character as required by the storyline, verse and
recitation: dialogue, chorus and the music of the 'Phi Phat" gamelan musical ensemble with a
solo woodwind accompaniment. The artistic feel created by these moods and movements allows the audience to gain a complete grasp of the storyline, and show Nang Yai Shadow Puppet Drama to be a high-class art fonn revealing the extraordinary ingenuity of our Thai forefathers.
