Prince Narisara Nuvadtivongs:  Painting of the Battle between Queen Suriyothai and the Viceroy of Prome in the Burmese-Siamese War of 1548-49, Date unknown -- pre-1947

Protesters gathering in central Rangoon, 1988

NOTE:  I don't think I'll be watching the news today.  It's just too polarizing.  The article about Secretary Clinton's upcoming trip to Myanmar is particularly confusing.  If you read it, you'll see what I mean.  The pictures here are intended to provide a little context, however.  For more information about Prince Narisara Nuvadtivongs, the artist who painted the picture in first position above, please see HERE.
