Myanmar Marionettes

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Stephen Studd

Myanmar (Burma) is a country that is well known for its puppet performances and also for its high percentage of the population that are Buddhist monks. This display at a market with the cultivated field behind had the feeling of Myanmar to me.

Location: Ywama village market, Lake Inle, Shan State, Myanmar (Burma)
