Ancient Siam

The Ancient City in Samut Prakan (Muang Boran)

The creation of the image of Hindu Deity with a Mitred Crown originated from Hinduism beliefs. The unique sculptural style has been popularly adopted through time when the Sombo Praikuk, Kampong Phra and Kulen schools of art prospered in the Chenla Kingdom.

Archaeologists believe that the images belong to the Funan school and were executed based mostly on Hinduism beliefs of the Vishnu sect. These sculptures are normally known as “Vishnu (Narai) with a Mitred Crown”.
