Beyond The Masks: River City: Tribal Arts of South Asia
« on: March 20, 2012, 08:17:32 PM »
Should you be into tribal Arts, and the stuff that inspires Henry Moore's sculptures, and some of Picasso's cubist bits, then you could get over to River City and check out at least four stores that specialise in popular culture / tribal arts.

A good deal of Indonesian and Polynesian art originals, not the copies made out of a plank of pine wood and then boot polished. Often pieces are tastefuly mounted up as well. It is not the tourist tack you will see on the beach and street stalls / Chatuchak Market. Masks and ceramics can be bagged for under $100 - though of course the sky is the limit. All the fertility stuff is in here ...should that be your wont. If you have ever read or browsed "Asian Arts Magazine" you may recognise some of the stores in River City as those advertising in half page expensive spreads.

This mall is full of art and antique shops. There are plenty of art boutiques/stalls on the ground floor, we purchased a buddha statue carved out of teak wood and incredible leather carvings....dis mall has more upscale art shops so prices here may be more expensive than those at the markets, but you are more likely to find authentic antiques here than at the outdoor markets...!
