Dancers and SaJa Chum

As part of the festivities in honor of Buddha's Birthday, some traditional dancers and musicians performed on a street near the Jogyesa Temple. Dancing in this performance is the SaJa Chum, a lion. I had previously seen a performance of a white SaJa Chum lion, which traditionally connotes the driving out of evil spirits with power and might.
