Nang Yai Wat Khanorn 3

Wat Khanorn has the most complete collection of engraved Nang Yai or "big hides". Nang Yai are large shadow puppets skillfully engraved from hide by local artists. Traditionally, shows using these puppet were only performed in the palaces for the king, but today there are regular shows for tourists, school children and wandering photographers.
