Phuket’s Mardi

Towering over the streets of Phuket in Thailand are several murals of a small person called Mardi.

Mardi is based on the daughter of artist Alex Face (Patcharapol Tangruen). She often appears dressed as a rabbit, but always with three eyes. The artist says that Mardi’s third eye allows her to experience another dimension, which we can feel but can’t see. It always looks in the opposite direction to the other two.

Mardi’s eyes are always red, blue and brown, but the colours move about.

    I’d lobe to see that character myself. Very cute, and able to be extra inquisitive!
