Buddha, Mandalay Hill, Myanmar — June 8, 2004

Halfway up Mandalay Hill is this unique standing Buddha with one arm pointing into the distance. The most distinctive characteristic of Mandalay influenced Buddha images (and most all from Myanmar) is the intricately ruffled robe drapped down the left shoulder. Large, drooping ears balance the head while a hair band separates the forehead from hair. A small flame protrudes from the head.
