 Concept of the exhibition

 “Kwan Khao” is Thai rice ritual which means the mascot of rice. Kwan Khao is usually performed before rice grains begin to emerge. It is the old traditional ritual that farmers who have rice fields will do every time when plants start giving the ear of rice. There is a popular belief among farmers community, that performing this particular ceremony will help achieve easy cultivation and will bring generous harvest. They will ask and pray to the mother of rice Mae Phosop, for having good and healthy products. Also it show gratitude to the Mae Phosop, The Goddess of Rice that helped humans live to this day. It is also a great way to create good morale for farmers and their families, to encourage them for hard labor.
