This is a 4x6 inch acrylics postcard for Wetcanvas art exchange project. Sam-Lor in Thai means a three-wheeler manpower taxi. It is quite a rare traditional Thai ways of life that is very hard to find in Bangkok. Now it is commonly replaced by a motorcycle-taxi. This one I found in Phrapradaeng market, which is a suburban province outside Bangkok. "Sam" in Thai means three and "Lor" in Thai means wheel; hence, the origin of its legendary name. It has sentimental value to me because it reminds me of my grandpa provinces.
