They are often represented as a pair, a brother and a sister, kneeling on both knees with hands in a praying position or offering respect. The Thepanom first came to earth when Buddha reached enlightenment. They became Buddha’s protector, then guardian of religious temples and artifacts such as scrolls. The definition of Theppanom was by reading descriptions of Theppanom statues and communicating with Thai people.
