The cultural project
Ramayana in ASEAN Cultural Embassy’ is based on a stage model, narrating an event of 10 Southeast Asian ambassadors going through three building structures for ASEAN conferences. The creative design of the three buildings is metaphor of the scenes appeared in the Ramayana story, originated in India and widely spread in Southeast Asia. The model also represents the art and craft of the 10 Southeast Asian nations. We aim at book publications and exhibitions in galleries and private/ national museums in Hong Kong, ASEAN region and other parts of the world depending on funding and supports from different sectors.
