Chapter 7 examines the monuments realized by the nationalist leadership that came to power in 1932 as ambitious but ultimately failed attempts at localizing a type of commemorative public sculpture and architecture modeled on the European tradition of propaganda. The chapter offers a close examination of several public monuments in Bangkok and elsewhere, and discusses the central role of the Italian sculptor and art educator Corrado Feroci, naturalized Thai with the name Silpa Bhirasri, and celebrated as “the father of Thai modern art.”
