  Indrachit

 

Thailand

Indrachit, one of the demons in the Ramakien, is the son of Totsakan and −like his father− he has a green complexion. In art he differs from his father by the crown he wears, which lacks the layers with green faces, that are present in Totsakan's crown and represent his ten heads (fig.). Here, in Wat Phra Kaew, he is erected in pair with Suriyapop (fig.), and from a distance resembles Totsakiriwan (fig.).
