national language may be regarded as an important component part of that
nation's culture.Altough the written language had been used in this land since
the 7th century, the earliest evidence of the Thai script was found inscribed on
a stele dated 1292. King Ramkhamhaeng the Great had invented the Thai script in
1283. This early Thai quite different from other contemporary scripts such as
the Khmer and the Mon. Certain characteristics of the Thai language such as
vowel and tone markings had been invented. On this stele, King Ramkhamhaeng told
of the Sukhothai cultural entity, its way of life, society, laws, believes,
traditions, etc. Clearly, by the 13th century, the Thais had realized a
distinctive culture of their own.
The Sukhothai economy proposed under a stable system of government. The Sukhothai kings were at once overlords, patriarchs and spiritual leaders, the forebears of the modern Thai monarchy. Under Their leadership, vast irrigation systems were developed. Sufficient agricultural production allowed for technological growth, and a surprisingly large-scale ceramics industry emerge. Architectural components and decorative elements were manufactured. Utensils were made in large quantities for export. Sukhothai wares became known worldwide and are now prized collector items. Iron, tin, zinc, lead and copper mines supplied the metal industries. A monetary system developed with foreign trade, using gold, silver and shell tokens, all forerunners of the modern system.
Sukhothai Buddha (Circa 13th-15th
The Sukhothai Art started from the reign of Poh Khun Si Inthrathit, the first king of the Ruang Dynasty. He was instrumental in establishing the Sukhothai Kingdom. The Early Sukhothai Art had received the influence from the Chiang Saen Art, especially the Khmer Art from 1010-1220 AD.Nonetheless, not long after the death of King Chaiworaman VII the Great, the Sukhothai Kingdom declared her independence. The kingdom had adopted the Sri Lanka Art as her contemporary. This was witnessed by the harmony of the Sukhothai Art, the blending among the major mixed Khmer Art of the Bayon Period and the Sri Lanka Art and the indigenous art.
The Sukhothai Art can be divided into 3 periods and 3 artisan families.
The three periods are the Primary Period (1238-1279 AD), the Transitional Period (1279-1348 AD) and the Pure Period (1348-1439 AD). And the tree artisan families, including the group from Takuan Temple (the Primary and the Transitional Periods in the 13th-14th centuries AD), are:
>1. The artisan family from the capital of the major family (14th-15th centuries AD),
>2. The artisan family from Kamphaeng Phet (14th-15th centuries AD) and
>3. The artisan family from Phitsanulok (14th-15th centuries AD).
The aforementioned three artisan families all have their own uniqueness and character conforming to the archetype of the Sukhothai Art, of which the elegance is second to none. This was before the Sukhothai Kingdom to become part of Krung Sri Ayutthaya in 1439 AD.
