Manorah Thai Dancer

Popular form of drama (theater-dance) since the late Ayudhaya Period (about 400 years ago). Manorah was a heavenly creature half bird half woman who lived at the top of the mountain far away from the earth in the kingdom of Kinorns. Patumraj, the King of Kinorns, had seven beautiful daughters. The youngest, Manorah, got caught by a hunter when she came down to swim in a pond at the foot of the hills. She was then presented to Prince Suton who married her, but Manorah's mother-in-law did not like her and plotted to get rid of her. One day she sent Suton off on an imaginary campaign. Back home she ordered the execution of Manorah who however asked for her wings so that, she could perform a last dance for her mother-in-law. But with the wings she fled quickly back to her home at the top of the mountain. When Suton came back he followed her to the mountain kingdom going through a lot of hardship, but he got there all the same. King Patumraj set a hard test of his love, by showing all the fingers of his seven daughters through holes, but Suton could identify the right finger belonging to his wife. Prince Suton had proved his love for Manorah so they could live happily together forever.
