In carving the statue, the snake was wrapped around the human body and biting his head. Currently, this statue is protected by an iron fence. This is intended to preserve the statue.

In addition to the statue, we also found many large rocks and small in the rice fields. However, we could not find information about the existence of such large stones. Nevertheless, from the areas we could see Mount Dempo and natural surroundings. Around this statue is located at the foot of Mount Dempo. So the landscape of Mount Dempo will look very attractive when seen from this area.


Interesting view!
