The Garden of Life

In the garden of the house museum, concepts of lifestyle and liberation are displayed. Visitors can admire works of art amidst nature, trees, and the breeze. The works on display here reflect various aspects of human life, such as the struggle and quest for life, love, human relationships, Dharma, nature, birth, aging, sickness, death, and the journey of the mind toward a world of peace and liberation. The works shown here are by artists from generation to generation, such as the set of Thai life sculptures created from 1948 to 1965 by Khien Yimsiri, one of the pioneers of modern sculpture in Thailand, displayed on a two-story balcony. Works like ‘Anatta’ by Chamruang Vichienket, the lion sculpture by Chuang Moolpinit, the symbolic work, ‘White Sand’ by Thana Lauhakaikul, and the work ‘Stop’ inspired by the destruction of important Buddha statues in Bamiyan, Afghanistan, by Vichai Sitthirat. Another outstanding piece is the work ‘Lost Spirit’ by Daeng Buasan.  Additionally, some sculptures reflect the value of Vipassana meditation by Noppadon Viroonchatapun and Nonthivathn Chandhanaphalin. This garden of life also houses the Buddhist Sanctuary of the house museum, which is a concrete building with a gable roof, enshrining Buddha statues from the Sukhothai period, arranged alongside Buddha statues from the era of King Rama IX of Rattanakosin, by Chakrabhand Posayakrit and Chalermchai Kositpipat. In front of and at the door of the Buddhist Sanctuary, new sculptures were specially created by Chatmongkol Insawang. In addition to general visits, those who are devoted followers of Buddhism can also pay their respects.
