RELIGION & MYTHOLOGY

 

 

 

  Min Kyawzwa

 

Myanmar

Statue of Min Kyawzwa, a Burmese nat, who —in one version— is described as an able rider, yet also as a drunkard and cock fighting gambler, who was allegedly killed by his victims who turned violent.

 

This nat thus became the guardian of drunkards and gamblers, and is usually depicted riding a horse, while the main offerings to this spirit are bottles of liquor.
