For this year’s IWD post, I would like to dedicate it to Japanese artist, Brooklyn-based, Naomi Okubo. Her paintings are feminine, depicting herself in an environment full of plants, flowers and bursting of vivid colours.

Ayutthaya, established in 1351, was capital of the Siam Kingdom. The city grew as an important trade point until in 1767 Burmese troops looted and destroyed it.

After renovations Ayutthaya has been declared a historical park with its temples and ruins.
