Myanmar (Burma), Yangon, Inya Lake Hotel, March 2012

Many guesses were very close, but Bellavista, SuperJoan and Lalbabu had the correct answer, i.e. a Buddha Footprint.
This print contains 108 illustrations which seem to be transliterations from the Burmese Pali script texts. In Bagan (Burma), all footprints contain 108 auspicious illustrations. Current knowledge of the existing texts suggests that only Pali texts were used in Bagan to create the footprints. During the Bagan Period (B.E.: 1583 to 1830; A.D.: 1040 to 1287), most of the several thousands of pairs of Buddha footprints were prepared, painted and embellished: http://www.dralbani.com/buddhafootprint/introduction.html

Some sort of game?, very beautiful.

No idea what it is exactly
based on the figures I would giuess some sort of prayer art or eastern astrological signs.
Whatever it is Peter, it is gorgeous
Have a fabulous weekend

Many thanks for the nice comments on the above “What is that” entry. The guesses ‘Burma story’, ‘hand of God’ and ‘rebus’ were close, but Bellavista, SuperJoan and Lalbabu gave the correct answer. I will include some information on Buddha Footprints in the caption.

Peter, thank you very much for your note. I can't send private messages from here at the moment. I just wanted to tell you that I am fine. And I hope you are, too.
