[chuck] in Dharma, Kayin State, Myanmar

This weathered concrete Buddha is sitting in a field at the base of a limestone mountain in Kayin State, Myanmar (see Bayin Nyi Monastery and Caves and Before the Rain).  The feet and hands have been weathered smooth. The face, albeit soiled and smudged, continues to maintain the calm, mindful countenance of an awakened being. A beautiful piece of Buddhist iconography.
