  Burmese animal-per-day chart

 

Myanmar

This Burmese sand painting shows a chart of the Burmese system of an animal-per-day, namely: the tiger for Monday, a lion for Tuesday, a tusked elephant for Wednesday morning and a tuskless elephant for Wednesday afternoon, a rat for Thursday, a Guinea pig for Friday, the naga for Saturday, and the Galohn (fig.) for Sunday. Note that the animals are here not listed in chronological order (fig.) and that in art sometimes other animals, not included in the system, may be added too.
