dc.description.abstractIn Late Bagan Period, the decorative art works were more complicated as those of symbolic concepts related to both of religious themes and ornamentation. Especially those of feminine deities can be abundantly found in the sikhara of Later Bagan Monuments. Perhaps the female icons were symbolized for the goddess and it might be related to the symbols of wisdom or Dhamma in thought of Northern Mahayana Buddhism. Likewise, the icons of ogre are richly found together with goddess and the head of ogre (kirtimukha) might be related to the concept of eternity in the belief of Tibetan Buddhism. In this study, analogical study will be approached to the religious symbols on the sikhara of Late Bagan Monuments in comparison with the concept of Northern Mahayana Buddhismen
