Burmese master craftsmen duplicate statues from the original Pagoda in Burma to 1/3 scale. This is the finished clay die before its placed in the kiln. Then the die will be used for the rubber molds used to cast the many statues that will adorn the Pagoda at Sitagu. Hand craftsmanship at its finest. By western standards this would be a multi-million dollar project, just for the art and sculpting work involved, not including the meditation area, buildings, library, reflection pond and the pagoda. The artists came from Burma simply for the sake of accomplishing something for their faith and their people. The west could learn something about true giving from this crew of dedicated Buddhist craftsmen for it's not all about the money.
