Once upon a time a Balinese dragon flew to Bangkok and found a magic garden. A naked woman wearing only a white pearl earring was riding the dragon. Among the flowers there was a dark box and a butterfly standing on it. The magic garden was actually a batik pillow cover of a popular Balinese export item also flown to Bangkok. The moment was photographed in Sukhumvit Soi 49 Bangkok and later recaptured by Mokoh in Pengosekan Bali. In this painting, Mokoh used a universal symbolism and association between a woman and a snake.
