Notes
Content: No. 19. Shwé Sippin Nat, also called Shwé Sit-thí Nat. His title was the Hlaingdet Myózá and he was the son of Sawmun-hnit, king of Pagán. He was sent to suppress the insurrection of Kyaing-thin, son of the Pagán Sawbwá, but spent the time in cock-fighting, and so was put to death by having his legs buried in the earth and being left to die. He became a Nat. This Nat is represented seated on a lotus throne in high class Court dress, with sword uplifted or over his shoulder in his right hand. [p. 61] No. 20. Mèdaw Shwésagá Nat. She was the mother of the Hlaingdet Myózá, who became the Shwé Sippin Nat, and died of grief at the terrible end of her son. She became a Nat also. This Nat is represented as a girl in full Court dress, with and without the nagá head-dress, kneeling on a lotus throne, or on a lotus, with her elbow in the fashionable state of dislocation. [p. 61]
