Traditional Tibetan Hiti Manga or Makara Thangka Print
Hiti manga, or Makara, is a mythical creature that has significant cultural and religious significance in many Southeast Asian countries, including Nepal, India, and Indonesia. In Hindu mythology, the Makara is considered to be the vahana or vehicle of the goddess Ganga, who is the personification of the Ganges River. The Makara is often depicted as a hybrid creature with the body of a fish and the head of a crocodile or peacock, sometimes with other elements like antlers or wings. It is known for its ferocity, power, and agility and is often associated with water, particularly the sea. The Makara has been used in art and architecture for centuries, with examples found in temple carvings, statues, and other cultural artifacts. It is believed to have protective powers, and its image is often used to ward off evil spirits and negative energy.
