The Naga or Mythical Serpent Motif: “The naga is the most important symbol in Lao Buddhism and legends. A water serpent (similar to a snake), the naga lives in the river. Rivers are very important to traditional Lao life because they are a source of water for human life and the health of crops. Some stories say that the naga also represents female energy. This is because females give life and rivers are also a life-giving force.” Source: Ock Pop Tok
