THAILAND EMBASSY CARVING ART




News Centre –TDO- Carvıng meeting was held on 25.04.2018 at the Thai Embassy. The ambassadors and their staff showed great interest in the meeting in Ankara.

Fruit and vegetable carving is a significant  part of Thailand’s historical past and has conquered the world as an exemplary form of art. This art dates back to the 13th century and had its origin in Sukothai, now in central Thailand.

Though traditional Thai carvings are more elaborate on watermelon, incorporating delicate flowers and animal shaped fruit and vegetable carving is a comprehensive domain where everything from basic plate garnishes and simple fruit bowls to edible arrangements and complex multi-piece show platters are attempted. Other than watermelons many smaller fruits are also used in fruit and vegetable displays. They include bananas, celery, beetroot, cucumber, potatoes and taro.
