  Hpaung Daw U Buddhas

 

Myanmar

The Hpaung Daw U Buddhas in Myanmar's Hpaung Daw U Pagoda (fig.). The images are covered in gold leaf to the point that their original forms can hardly be distinguished.

 

Although on occasion some of the gold is removed to reduce its mass, worshippers continue to apply new gold leaves in order to make merit.
