Can You Help Identify This?

Does anyone know what this graphic is called? I am really interested in either getting it as a tattoo or having a custom graphic made for my car, but I can’t find its name or a larger version. Any ideas?

    It appears to be a depiction one of a type of celestial beings (note: not Buddhas), as part of a Southeast Asian religious tradition.

    It looks like a Thai Buddha fairy to me. :D Sort of a mish mash of stuff. I don't know if it's from any particular tradition but then again, I don't know much about this stuff.

    Brigid, that is quite a nifty way of describing it!
    These celestial beings, usually celestial dancers, are often depicted around a Buddha, floating on a cloud or maybe just grouped close by a Buddha, giving their respects or celebrating an elightened being.

    :) That's a lovely description! Sounds like angels.
