In nature, the dome of the sky arches above the mountain. The parasol in Buddhism is symbolically a device which casts a shadow, and therefore, offers protection from heat. Also, in Indian mythology, the parasol has traditionally been associated with royalty. Held above the head, it conveys honour and reverence, and hence the Buddha is often depicted sitting under a decorative parasol.
