Broken Buddhas at Si Saket

Another shot of the shattered Buddha statues stored in Wat Si Saket in Vientiane, Laos. The statues were destroyed during the intensive bombing of Laos in the Vietnam War (see Collateral Damage). I currently have a copy of this image as the desktop on my MacBook Air. Good lesson in impermance. For your own lesson in impermanence, a high resolution copy of the image above can be downloaded here.

[NOTE: Apparently, Laos is the most heavily bombed country in history.  An estimated 260 million cluster bombs were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War - one every eight minutes, 24 hours a day for nine years].
