Eight is Enough

Apparently eight heads are better than one. In the center of this magical incantation cloth is the four-headed Brahma, Phra Phrom, and on the outer periphery is a quartet of Phra Lersi, the hermit monk who wears tiger skins.  All of these portrait images are intended to provide luck, guidance, and protection for the driver and his passengers. But for me, I would get disoriented following these characters that peer out from every perspective.
