The five Buddha images in the Phaungdawoo Pagoda shown in the picture at the right.
Myanmar (Burma), Inle Lake,Ywama Village, March 2012

These five Buddha images are said to be donated by King Alaung Sithu. Devotees have covered them with so many gold leaves, that they have become "gold lumps" and you cannot recognize the original Buddha images anymore.
Another picture of these "Buddhas" and a nice tale about them can be found at the page of Elly Merz: http://www.fotothing.com/ellymerz/

Piet, je hebt natuurlijk gelijk met de engelse vertaling, maa ons engels is niet zo goed daarom zijn we niet zeker of de mensen het dan beter kunnen lesen. Die foto van je vinden we erg goed en precies zo als het is.

Elly, ik heb bij de volgende close-up van die goudklompen jullie verhaal in het Engels vertaald, uiteraard met verwijzing naar jullie foto.
