Renowned Traditional Architect U Win Maung shares insights on the construction of the Shwezigon Pagoda Replica at Sitagu Buddhist Vihara in Austin Texas. He and a hand full of master craftsmen are painstakingly duplicating the intricate carvings, statues, shrines and tile work that adorns the original Shwezigon Pagoda in Myanmar.

Truly, the Shwezigon Pagoda in Austin Texas will be a work of art and architectual masterpiece when completed.

Sitt Nyein Aye is truly a trailblazer in the art world. Top of his class with honors in Burma he also was a rebel. He earned his place in art history since he ventured where no other artists ventured before, the modern art scene. Granted, the socialist government was not to pleased. In the dark days of 1988 he moved to India. Though he would have lived most comfortably in India he chose to give his earnings to pro democracy groups around the world in support of their valiant struggle. After living in India for 20 years he recently migrated to America and destiny.

Humanity is in his blood since he is dedicating his time and skills to the Shwezigon Pagoda and Meditation Center Project. Eventually he will pursue his dream and open an art school for Burmese and non Burmese artisans who yearn to learn from a true master. And he could not have chosen a better place to establish himself in the art scene, Austin Texas.

Please note that the quality of his art work presented on this video does not do him justice. But there will be more interviews and videos in the future as this creative genius evolves in the great state of Texas. And I’ll be there to capture his achievements on film and print.

Let me try to translate in short:- It’s about  his life and struggle to become one of the most popular Artist in the country. With little finance support he never gave up his loves and fascination toward modern art and managed to study work of art for eight years! His dedication finally brought him to be recorded as a successful artist in Mandalay-Abhi-Dan (burmese version of guinness record). Let’s wait to the third part on how he has actively engaged against tyranny!
