TH11: Kinnara

Kinnaras are supposed to be mythical beings. Celestial musicians, they are associated with playing musical instruments, typically stringed ones, and also love. In Thai representation, they are shown with a human torso and the lower half of a bird, whereas the Indian representation shows them with a lower horse half.

I had not heard of Kinnaras before, thank you for the interesting information.

I love the depth of field and framing in your photograph.
