KALAE - The Lanna Architecture

KALAE

   The wooden architecture of Kalae in northern Thailand is a sight to behold. The wooden decorations, known as Kalae, that adorn the roofs of traditional houses in the area are truly magnificent. These intricately carved and painted ornaments add a touch of whimsy and beauty to the already picturesque landscape.

   Made of wood, the Kalae can be found on the gables of roofs, extending outwards and upwards to form elaborate geometric patterns and designs. Skilled artisans painstakingly craft these decorations using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. The designs often feature motifs from nature, such as flowers, birds, and leaves, as well as geometric shapes and symbols with cultural significance.

   The Kalae not only serves a practical purpose in providing protection from the elements but also enhances the overall appearance of the house. Painted in bright colors, these wooden decorations add vibrancy to the earthy tones of the surrounding landscape.
