On this day 32 years ago, Thailand began its annual National Artist Day to celebrate their nation’s creative artists and award benefits to honorees. The date chosen was the birthday of Buddha Loetla Nabhala, King Rama II (1767-1824), a poet and artist whose reign is known as the most peaceful time in Thailand’s history and the “Golden Age of Rattanokosin Literature.” (1985)
