Black is also associated with mystery sophistication and stealth. Gold on the other hand is closely associated with yellow which was the official color of the ancient Emperors of China. The color yellow is an earth color and like black neutral in its energy. Yellow is also symbolic of letting go of worldly cares. The Chinese often used this color to decorate their palaces and for their clothing. While color symbolism is usually associated with the Chinese this lovely scene was actually inspired by the north of Thailand. Thailand once called Siam is an amazingly diverse country with deep cultural roots. In the north of Thailand the climate is cooler than the south due to it being a mountainous region. Many small rural villages can be found in the north part of the country. As can be seen in the scene on this fan small huts temples boats and plenty of natural foliage often dot the countryside. This spectacular Thai wall fan is completely hand-painted by a skilled artist. Different brush strokes are used to create different objects in the fan. This amazing technique is simple yet takes years to master. A paint brush in the hands of a skilled artist has created the beautiful image you see before your eyes.

The north has its own particular cuisine amazing festivals and a very distinct dialect that the rest of the country cannot understand. The capital of the north region is Chiang Mai.

Ancient roads walls and structures stand side-by-side with recently built malls restaurants and businesses.
