Thai artist paintings in a calendar

Art

I came across a reasonably well preserved calendar from Siam Exchange Bank for the year 1997 (Thai year 2540). It consists of Buddhist art painting and it is themed as Symbols of Dhamma Mahajanaka.

From the style of the painting, I think it could be from Ajahn Chalermchai Kositpipat (เฉลิมชัย โฆษิตพิพัฒน์) whose work I greatly admired. He is well known for his art as well as his work on Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

Even though this calendar is more than 20 years, the art work is beautiful and it is also done in honor of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Hopefully in future my Thai language would improve and I would be able to come back and fully translate the meanings in the calendar. Meanwhile, do enjoy the art. You can click on the calendar to enlarge the image.
