Traditional Lao Nak designs

Three examples of traditional Nak designs found in various Lao communities around the world, although the research suggests there are many possibilities and configurations. These three in particular give an example of the variations they can have for the discerning eye. Unfortunately, as is often the case, information regarding the specific significance for many of them is hard to come by. In DEMONSTRA, they figure frequently in many poems in both conventional and newer techniques of representation.
