Backside of the Naga snakes heads

The backside of Shesha at the mountain hill at Wat Phra Bat Phu Pan Kham.
Shesha is said to hold all the planets of the universe on his hoods and to constantly sing the glories of the God Vishnu from all his mouths. He is sometimes referred to as Ananta Shesha, which translates as endless-Shesha or Adishesha "first Shesha". It is said that when Adishesa uncoils, time moves forward and creation takes place; when he coils back, the universe ceases to exist.
An example of the influence of Hindu mythology in Thai Theravada Buddhism.
