This Burmese Teak wood Nat spirit Min Lay is one of a family of three nats, the mother Maw Wana and his brother Burmese Min Gyi Nat Spirit, also known as the Taungbyon brothers.

In the centre of Taungbyone approximately Nine miles from Mandalay, is a small hill with a pagoda perched on top where an annual ritual is held in March each year, to honor these two Nat spirits. It is a noisy and sometimes unrestrained affair of merry-making, dancing and drinking.

Throughout Myanmar formerly Burma, there are a many Nat spirit festivals. One of the biggest festivals is dedicated to the Taungbyone brothers, Min Lay and Min Gyi. During this festival they commemorate the fable or legend of these two Nat spirits who are also sometimes referred to as the Shwe Phyin Brothers (Shwe Phyin Nyi Naung).
