This pic is one that I've nearly discarded 10 over yrs back, I found it in a badly creased and tattered conditions and decided to revive it in the hope that pple who visits my gallery gets to see and comments on it. Nagas are serpent-beings with the ability to transpose between humans and snakes. There are various beliefs and representation of the Naga race, some depict it as creatures with the upper torso of humans and lower body od huge scaly snakes. My pic depict otherwise! Nagas are not actually that bad as mentioned in most western text, here's a story about good Nagas : It is said that while meditating under a fig tree, the Buddha, founder of Buddhism was chastised by strong wind and heavy rain, a Naga noticed his radiance and took pity on him; slithers up to him and coiled around him, it raised its head over the Buddha and shielded him from the torrential rain and chilling winds.
