The Burmese Puppet Mythological Forest Ogre referred to as Taw Belu. The Forest Ogre eats raw meat and wears a plume on his headdress. The Palace Ogre known as (Nan Belu) is more noble and powerful than his rival the Forest Ogre so he always stands on the right of the stage and always enters and exits from the right. Because they are enemies they are never stored in the same trunk!
