From 'Masks of Khon' : Khon, the traditional dance-drama of thailand, originated from India, via Java and Malaysia, probably in the fifteenth century. Its basic plot comes from the semi-religious epic, 'Ramakien', which is Thailand's version of the 3,000-year-old Hindu drama, 'Ramayana'. Source: 'Orientations Magazine', Feb, 1972.
