Wood Carving of Laos

Wood Carving of Laos

Wood is used extensively in the lives of the Lao people as is evident from the Buddha images, carved in the finest of woods, intricately carved doors and window frames in Lao temples and palaces, to everyday items such as toys, kitchen utensils, bowls, opium pipes etc. Wood work and wood carving are very popular, second only to textiles, amongst the ethnic minority handicrafts produced in Laos.

Wood is often used in conjunction with other materials like bamboo, stone, metal and ceramics to produce objects of both utility and art.
