Modern buchas or statues of See Hoo Ha Taa or 5 Eyes 4 Ears. In Old Northern Lanna Kingdom, Thailand of today, in the city of Chiang Mai, legends speak about a tiny little monster, horrible and cute at the same time, that fell from the sky almost destroying the house of an old man. He kept the furry critter into a cage for a while but nor food nor water were accepted, until a hot charcoal from the fireplace got closed to the creature. The poor man gave then to the beast embers and charcoals to eat. When he woke up found that the beast had defecated solid gold.
This monster is an avatar of Indra, the storm God.
