  Chakrawat

 

Thailand

Chakrawat is a giant or yak character in the Ramakien. He has a white complexion and is described as having four faces and eight arms. In Thai iconography, he is hence depicted wearing a chadah-like crown, with an additional 3 small white faces, but usually only with two arms. The peak of his crown is shaped like a thick giant plume that bends toward the back (fig.).
