Thailand has long coastlines. Boat is quite commonly seen in people's daily life. Thus the pattern of boat has also become a frequent caller on gilt lacquer plates. The ship on this plate has a highly-raised bird-head-shaped stem and a bird-tail shaped stern. 20 people are working hard together in paddling. The middle part of the boat is installed with a lattice table, on which there is a director holding a feather rod in his hand. A person is dancing at the stern. The entire design presents the scenes of a celebration, which not only demonstrates ancient people's heroic undertaking in crossing the ocean, but depicts the memory about ancient Thai people ploughed through terrifying waves and arrived at new residence.
