  Bagaya Kyaung (wood carvings)

 

Myanmar

In 1821, the 16th century AD wooden Bagaya Kyaung monastery in Inwa (fig.) was burnt in a fire. Despite later renovations, soot and black residue from the fire is still visible on large parts of the wooden structure today.

 

While some parts, like this wooden enclosure, may show only minor effects from the blaze, other parts, such as the door panel below, are burnt to near charcoal.
