Ethereal paintings of Songkran (Thai New Year) goddesses by Sompop Budtarad, one of Thailand’s most prominent traditional-style artists. Coinciding with the festival, the display of semi-nude paintings could be seen as an attempt to reignite debate about the history of nudity in Thai culture, a debate that arose a couple of years ago when female revelers danced topless in the streets and were severely reprimanded.
