Folk Painting of Phra Narai (Vishnu)
The deity Phra Narai, or Vishnu in the Hindu cosmology, is shown here rendered in gouache and marker pen on heavy drawing paper. In Thailand he symbolizes generosity and is superior to all other gods. As Vishnu, he is one of three principal deities and is worshipped as the protector of the world. He is often depicted with multiple arms holding his tools. This colorful, dynamic version is pure Thai, showing him posturing against the threat of multiple cobras.
