Brush Marks On His Face

Brush marks on face

His face was painted with Thanaka

Shot at Shwedagon Paya, a Buddhist temple in Yangon, Myanmar.

The boy was playing around in the precinct. Like other people, Thanaka was painted on his face. Apparently, it was painted with a brush. I could see the traces of the brush and they looked like brush marks. When I held my camera, he might be interested in me. And he started to look straight at me without saying a word.

By the way, I saw many people who painted Thanaka on their faces here. Yet I have never seen people who were just painting it.
