Mae Bper, the Baubo of old Siam

The animistic Mother Goddess of Old Siam is called Mae Bper. Her fertility association is clear due to the posture and superlative attributes. This bucha is made of samlit alloy (gold, silver and copper). I was able to get it during a field research in Mae Sariang’s area.
Mae Bper is believed to be the partner of Phra Ngang, both originally mountain, forest deities of animistic, pre buddhist times.
