Young Monks

January 6 (part 3): More from Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. Click images to enlarge them.


In Shwedagon Pagoda, I photographed these young novice monks climbing a stairway to pray with an elder monk.


The image is reminiscent of this painting by Min Wae Aung, whose work we saw in a Yangon gallery and which is imitated widely.


The young monks at prayer under the gaze of watchful deities.
