Si-Sawat is Thai for the colour of the sawat seed, a bluey grey which is also the colour of the Korat cat also called Si-Sawat.
The Korat cat is traditionally given to married couples as a wedding gift as it is believed to be lucky and bring prosperity to the newlyweds. I decided to paint this beautiful breed with a background of moths in flight as the moth is also very symbolic in many cultures but in my painting it is a reference to the trade in silk and the silk moth; I wanted to represent a feeling of exotic opulence to compliment this gorgeous cat
