About this Traditional Naga Art
This Naga art is an original handmade painting on canvas by our professional Thai artist. In Buddhism, Naga is a mythical serpent being that appears in many Southeast Asian legends. Indeed, “Naga” is a Sanskrit word, meaning a cobra. It is a water-dweller and lives in a river, ocean, or underground cave. The Lord Brahma had created Naga to be a protector from evils. While in Buddhism, Naga represents a door guardian at the temple. According to Thai folklore, Nagas are believed to live in the Mekong River. Moreover, Naga also has a supernatural power to transform itself into a human appearance.
