Photographic Print. Gold Thai statue on Ionic column in the clouds with hands and face to the sky.
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. Standing high on Classical Ionic columns, they overlook Palm trees and the Piazza Pool which were built in 1964 - 1965. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis incorporated many architectural styles from a wide range of periods from around the world and collected a diverse range of statues, sculptures, fountains and curiosities.
In Paintings in Gouache there are 4 paintings about Portmeirion and The Prisoner who was played compellingly by Patrick McGoohan as the angry passionate Number 6. Scott Hill in Wired wrote, "When he first thought up the influential series, McGoohan wrote a 50-page Prisoner bible that explained everything actors, producers and other principals needed to know."
