Mural painting at Baan Hollanda Museum, the Netherlands Embassy

       Commissioned by the Dutch Embassy, this mural was an illustration based on the early Dutch settlement in Ayuthaya (old capital of Thailand). It was based on the old ship's map which were drawn by the Dutch in the 17th century. It was a very honorable job for me to bring history back to life with a playful appoarch. The museum itself is located at the exact original location of the early Dutch settlement, and the mural is located on the reception of the museum (first thing you see as you walked in). Therefore its aim is to draw attention of the visitors at first sight and make them want to study more about the history behind this museum.
