The Javanese Dragon (Naga in Javanese) is a creature of mythology, known as the world serpent of traditional Javanese mythology. It derives from the early Shiva-Hinduism and Javanese animism. Antaboga is believed to be a guardian deity who resides deep within earths core. This Javanese dragon is described as a giant magical snake, and wearing a crown on his head. Sometimes the Javanese Dragon is depicted wearing earrings and a necklace of gold jewelry.
