The Pegu Mother Royal:  The Patron Nat-Lady of the Mons of Pegu area

Today her story is enacted in ritual feasts, the story of a she buffalo who took care of a baby prince left in the woods.  She lost her life trying to find her adopted son who was taken back by his royal kinsmen. The real mother of the prince decided to wear the headdress, shaped like a buffalo's head, in the memory of the one who saved her son's life. She often carries flowers in an offering bowl in her outreached hands.
