Nagas are dragon or serpent-like beings with the word Naga coming from the Buddhist language Pali and in Lao it is called Nak. Nagas are often seen as benevolent beings that protect and save humans from illnesses, hunger and bad spirits, and Buddhists revere the Naga as he saved Buddha from the floods.

Both nagas and nyaks (one of our other pin designs) can be guardian protectors, usually in a pair on either side of the Buddha, or on either side of an entrance to a wat where they perform protecting service to the Buddha image or to the contents of the space protected.
