Elephants under Bohdi Tree Shadow Puppet


Mr. Nab Rin and Sreyroth Rin | Cambodia

This leather shadow puppet was hand carved in Cambodia by master shadow puppet maker Mr. Nab Rin, and his daughter Sreyroth Ren.

This puppet shows two elephants standing at the base of a bohdi tree. The bodhi tree is significant in Buddhist culture because it is known as the tree that provided shade and shelter for the Buddha as he sat beneath it meditating and eventually reaching enlightenment.
