A Burmese Buddha for Postcard Friendship Friday

Postcard from Bagan, Burma

This beautiful and intricate sculpture depicts 8 important events from the Buddha's life. It can be seen in Bagan museum (in the city of the same name) - which has some absolute gems on display even apart from this one.

Check out Postcard Friendship Friday on Marie Reed's blog.
