India, Korea, and Thailand each have unique styles of artwork, reflecting their culture with different visual elements, techniques, and symbolism. Though the artworks from these three cultures differentiate in some ways, the viewer will find that they also have some similar features in their art work. The Indian culture itself reflects almost transparently through its artworks from the patterns, to the use of colors, and stories the works tell. The base and media of the artwork from India isn’t specific, overtime, it evolved from rock paintings, to paintings, to sculptures. The people painted and also made into sculptures all have a distinct look, the same technique was used. The eye shape was very discrete and the same, the noses were all alike, and the woman had similar body shapes. Cultural Indian art derives mostly from the Hindu religion. The symbolism in their artwork is typically from how the subject’s body is positioned, or the scenario they are in, the subject being a god or goddess most of the time. Korean culture is shown a little more complexly through its artwork. Like the Indian artwork, the Korean artwork doesn’t have a specific base or media; it evolved overtime with its people. The media differs; it can be from a stone sculpture to paper art. A famous technique used in old Korean art is called “chingyoung sansu”, literally translating to “real landscape”. The style incorporates a not-so-realistic looking subject in an extremely realistic looking landscape. Many Korean artist use techniques from Chinese artwork into their works, the techniques used in Korean artwork is very similar to those used in Chinese artwork. Symbolism found in Korean artwork is mostly derived from the ancient Buddhist beliefs, sort of like Indian artwork symbolizing ancient Hindu beliefs. Different animals, flowers, people in works symbolize different things. For example, Peonies were used in many Korean paintings and are symbolized as wealth, honors, and high social status. There are also the famous ten longevity symbols being the sun, clouds, mountains, rocks, water, cranes, deer, turtles, pine trees, and mushrooms. Thai culture shows through its artwork, like the Korean works, a little more complexly than Indian…

I was making my way through the Sculpture Garden to the Walker Art Musuem, when I stumbled onto this sculpture. I was lost at this point so I tried to…
