Thailand: Korlae fishing boats, Saiburi, southern Thailand. Along the east coast of peninsular Thailand, from Ko Samui southward, colorful, painted fishing boats have been built and decorated by Muslim fishermen for hundreds of years. The finest examples of this now declining industry originate in the boatyards of Saiburi District, Pattani Province. Among the characters depicted on the detailed hull designs are the singha lion, the gagasura horned bird, the payanak sea serpent, and the garuda bird that is both the symbol of the Thai Kingdom and the mythical mount of the Hindu God Vishnu.
