Kyauk Sit Tan Dhamar Yone Stone Carving Quarter
Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)
Puppet ProcessionTraditional Burmese puppets for sale in a woodcarving shop in Mandalay, Myanmar. This shop is located in the Kyauksittan quarter of Mandalay, which is known for its many stone-carving workshops. The Burmese make some of the finest handicrafts in the world (even better than the Balinese, IMHO) and are world-class craftsmen. Myanmar is a fantastic place to find absolutely beautiful interior pieces and objet d'art, but make sure you bring enough cash to buy them since they don't take credit cards!
