Wood Carving of Rabbit
Wood Carving of Bird
This large and elegant teak building was constructed by a wealthy Chinese jade merchant in 1895 to please his devoted Burmese wife. The first 16 of these photographs were taken on the exterior of the building where the light was very good (it was around mid-morning); and the next 12 were part of a surround by the main shrine (as light was very low inside the building they have had to be adjusted). The carving is very fine in detail, and the scenes on the inside show courtly and daily life.
