  Theppaksi

 

Thailand

A gilded Theppaksi in Wat Phra Kaew, Bangkok. The body and head are those of a man, whilst the legs and tail are those of a bird (paksi).

 

It is similar to the Kinnara but its lower arms have  no feathers or winged section whereas its counterpart does (fig.). On its head it wears a chadah.
