Mahanakha has always been the Sacred mythical water creature of both Buddhism and Hinduism. Ancient thai ancestor believes that the blessing of Mahanakha will bring them immortality from Mahanakha’s infinite lengths. This mythical creature only appears in glimpses to human eyes. This increases the mythical and sacred factor to this God of water.
The side elevation of Mahanakha’s lengths is displayed in a partial section. The movement of the muscle is exaggerated in the steel structural form underneath all 1500 individually hand-hammered steel scales. The muscle form is computer generated and laser-cut into steel sections. The scales of Mahanakha were blackened on the topside and Gold-leafed on the underside, to amplify the extreme rare appearance of Mahanakha.
