Historic Buddha Image in the museum of Min Buri

Historic Buddha Image in the museum of Min Buri
This Thai Buddha image shows the pang man wichai position, the submission of the "Māra".
In Buddhism, Māra is the demon who tempted Gautama Buddha by trying to seduce him with the vision of beautiful women who, in various legends, are often said to be his daughters. In Buddhist cosmology, Māra personifies unskillfulness, the "death" of the spiritual life. He is a tempter, distracting humans from practicing the spiritual life by making the mundane alluring or the negative seem positive.
