Embroidered Thai silk kept in a box labeled Tran Vai Lua. The blue silk is taped to and framed by white matting paper. The textile measures 14 1/4 inches in length by 14 3/8 inches in width. The image depicted is of two elephants, one red and green, and 10 figures locked in battle. Each elephant carries three figures, two fighting with spears and one holding feathers. Four figures are fighting on the ground with swords and spears, only one of which has a shield and is kneeling. The ground varies from green, to red, to gold.
