The works were created by celebrated Thai sculptor and national artist Chamruang Vichienket, his wife and distinguished sculptress Saovapa, and their sons _ Yannapol, a fellow sculptor, and Nithi and Nathee, both painters.

Chamruang will display a bronze casting of his award-winning piece titled Group, which was recently installed at Bank of Thailand's new wing.

Saovapa will present her newest project, a sculpture of the Lord Buddha in the graceful style of the Sukhothai period. She also carries forward her signature mother-child theme, with a piece titled Life Games, comparing the guidelines of mothering to the rules of sport.

The accomplished sculptor Yannapol will reveal a humouristic side to his work, drawing on everyday household items. Nithi, one of the two painters in the celebrated family, joins the sculptors with a display of paintings using unusual combinations of colours to represent harmony.

Part of the proceeds from sales of the art pieces will be donated to the Foundation for the Blind in Thailand under the royal patronage of HM the Queen and the Art Learning Centre of Baan Silpagam Vichienket.

The Vichienket Family Sculpture Exhibition will be on show daily from10amto8pmfrom March 2 to 17 at the City Gallery, 2nd level of the Garden Pavilion, Sukosol Bangkok Hotel (former Siam City Hotel) on Si Ayutthaya Road. Call 02-247-0123 ext 1912 or 1916—8.
