  Benyagai plays dead

 

Thailand

A scene from the Ramakien, in which the ogre Benyagai (fig.) took the form of Sida (fig.) and plays dead near the monkey camp of Phra Ram, hoping that the latter would cease his quest for his beloved. But, the plan fails as Hanuman notes that the alleged corpse, which was found at a river bank and apparently drowned, could not have floated upstream from Totsakan's camp.
