Company Profile

 

From a small household industry, nowadays it was developed to be the valuable Thailand OTOP souvenir ( The folk handmade product from each district. ) More than 20 years experience and skill, the artwork from Nang TaLung being famous and accepted to be an artful gift, souvenir and decoration from Thailand local artist. Then it is supported and inherited to the new generation to preserve this precious Thailand artwork under the name of “Youth group shadow carving”

We proud to offer the best attractive Thai local handmade of ancient perforated leather which
modify from Nang Ta Lung (Shadow Play),the tradition amusement in the Southern of Thailand.
All the designs come from famous stories and the characters of Thai literatures and it reflects the
art of living of Thai native culture.


Formally, the performance of Nang Ta lung was depicted from the story of Ramakien of Hindu in India. Then it was revised in order to suit the popularity of the audiences and time such as its content, hero and heroine and musical instrument. This performance consists of a chief and manipulators of puppets. The choef will conceal behind a brilliantly backlit white screen made of cloth. His function is to provide dialogues for every puppet and also recite the story in verse while the play is proceeding.

Presently, either hero, heroine or demon will be only the complementary performers of the play while the joker becames a favourite performer of audiences. It is believed that the characters of joker immitate from the real life of human who has special personality and a queer gestures that create lots of humour. Generally, Nang Ta lung is made of cowhide which is easily found and has good quality. Every piece of Nang Ta lung is given life by the chief. He will insert his feeling and emotion on the puppet by the verse he sings during the play.

Nowadays Nang Ta lung is still found at southern Thailand especially at the house of Uncle Suchat Sapsin in Nakhon Si Thammarat province. Besides being the museum of Nang Ta lung, this house also displays many kinds of tools of local people.
