The Tai Taeng wall hanging features a diamond Naga pattern which tells the story of a Naga prince protecting the lotus diamond. The piece is inspired by a popular Lao folklore wherein a beautiful weaver and handsome Prince Naga.
To get the weaver’s attention, the Naga transforms into a chicken and steals the beautiful weaver’s shuttle. He runs to the river, with the weaver chasing after him. The Naga returns to the underwater Naga world, where the weaver finds him and they fall in love. He turns a lotus flower into a diamond and gifts it to her parents, so they will agree to the marriage.
And, thus, the weaver and the Naga Prince lived happily ever after. It is said they spend half the year in the river and half the year on land!
