Photographic Print. Gold Thai statue on Ionic classical column in blue sky and clouds at the Piazza.
They are known in Portmeirion as the Thai dancing figures but are
sometimes called the Siamese twins. It is not recorded from where and
when Sir Clough Williams-Ellis aquired them, however there is a painting by Meryl
Watts who painted at
Portmeirion from 1942 onwards and an undated painting featuring the
statues seems to be from
the mid 1950s. They overlook Palm trees and the Piazza Pool which were
built in 1964 - 1965. These Ionic columns are 2 of the 8 rescued from the Colonnade of Hooton Hall, Chester 30 years before 4 of them were used in the Gloriette. When it rains or the weather is changeable, I wait for the sun to shine
to photograph the village, architecture and gardens because I think it
is like a beautiful stage set waiting for the spotlights it deserves to
be switched on, so that it glitters.
Colours are as accurate as possible but may differ slightly due to
Shipping outside UK mainland is estimated, on
