[chuck] in Art, Dharma, Other, Shwedagon Pagoda, Tazaungdaing

Scene from Shwedagon a few days prior to the Tazaungdaing Festival (see Tazaungdaing). I imagine these two statues are pointing (with painted fingernails) to something really important. Couldn't figure out exactly what. The temple they are pointing to contains a beautiful statue of Buddha, much (to my eye) like the one shown in the background of the image. [NOTE: Day three of Rohtasu week; I'm doing a lot of sitting].
