The Naga is the serpent deity in both Buddhist and Hindu mythology. The design figured here commonly occurs as part of the headdress of this deity wherever it is used to adorn entranceways with the Naga providing the necessary protection. The golden color whether inlaid gold or not gives it its royalty status while the blue hues symbolizes heaven itself.
