CLAIM ID

281092be

The skeleton of a giant who died battling a large serpent was found in Krabi, Thailand, in 2017.

Images of a Taiwanese art installation that looked like fossils of a giant and a snake have been falsely shared as being from Thailand.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Taiwan published an article by the Ministry of Culture (MOC) in 2018 about two large-scale installations by Taiwanese artists. The installation exhibited the bones of a giant and a serpent and a long tail boat. The artwork looked like an excavation site.

Taiwan artist Tu Wei's installation represents a Krabi folktale about two enemies who fight over a princess. The MOC claimed that the art piece was given special clearance to be displayed at the Khao Khanab Nam Caves.

In 2018, Taiwan Today reported that article the bones of the giant, snake, and long-tail boat were among the highlights of the inaugural Thailand Biennale in Krabi. After the event ended in 2019, Thai organizers chose Tu's "Giant cheng's Ruins" and artist collective LuxuryLogico's "Voyage in Time" to remain on permanent exhibit, demonstrating deeper ties between the two countries, according to the MOC.
