Burmese Antique Wooden Nat Min Gyi and his brother Min Lay are Burmese mythological Nat spirits popularly known as the Taungbyone brothers.
The story of these two brothers dates back to the 11th century when they were chosen to be two of the main pantheon of 37 Nats by King Anawrahta of Pagan when endeavouring to establish the Theravada school of Buddhism as the dominant religion of Myanmar.
Min Gyi and Min Lay are the sons of the Nat spirit Me Wunna, also referred to as Popa Me Daw nat or Popa Medaw, meaning mother of Popa.
