The Faces of Buddha in Myanmar

Standing, sitting and reclining Buddha statues abound in Myanmar. Each pagoda (local Buddhist religious center) has many different Buddhas which serve as focal points for offerings and meditation. While sculptors often create Buddhas with typical mudras (symbolic hand positions), they have freedom to shape facial expressions with subtle differences . These images of Buddhas were taken at pagodas in various cities in this country.
