Sang Tong translates as the golden shell and comes from a beautiful Thai folk tale that is still a subject of study in Thai schools today. It is about a boy called Sang Tong who emerges triumphant and ‘golden’ from disquieting conditions. The story has a direct relevance to the subjects in Everton’s current body of work, for like Sang Tong, the children featured are Thai adoptees who have attained radiance in a changing of circumstance. They all now live in Melbourne.
