Since I wasn't going to Chiang Mai, the guide suggested we stop by the Royal Thai Handicraft Center which showcases traditional carving techniques from the north.


One of the sculptures in progress was based on a full-length tree trunk.



Starting from the bottom up.



The pattern is traced out on paper first.



I love the detail - see the squirrel on the lower right?
