This painting by @tonyslong depicts the dog from the well-known Khasi folktale "Ka Ïew Luri Lura jong u Laiphew Mrad".


In the story the dog attempts to sell tungrymbai or fermented soyabean in the animal market but it ends up being trampled upon by the other animals because they could not bear the smell of tungrymbai 😅😅🐶🐶 It is said that it is because of this incident that the dog came to live with man.
