  yan

 

Thailand

A Buddhist monk applies the mythical yan sign above some other magical symbols, during an inauguration ceremony of a business. The sign is often seen in more permanent form, in Buddhist art and iconography (fig.), such as in the royal emblem of King Rama I, here seen in the top right corner (fig.).
