@J_A_Moulton The Naga are snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology, hence the name ‘Nagini.’ They are sometimes depicted as winged, sometimes as half-human, half-snake. Indonesia comprises a few hundred ethnic groups, including Javanese, Chinese and Betawi. Have a lovely day 🐍

The more modern depictions of naga in javanese wayang are more structured. I like the visibility of movements in the primbon’s drawing. But they all look great.
The left naga is Batara Antaboga, the god of the underworld. The father of Nagagini, who is married to Bima.
