Artist's Description

A mahout rides his elephant in a Lua village in northern Thailand. The Lua, the original people of Thailand, once lived in thousands of villages across the hills, but about 500 years ago most of them fled, leaving only a handfull of villages west of Chiang Mai. The Lua and the Karen once captured wild elephants and domesticated them to help drag logs and carry rice from their fields.
