The body was painted in various color

Shot at a small fishing village in Dalah, Myanmar.

Some fishing boats were landed to repair when I walked the riverside. The wooden boat in this photo was one of them. And a man wearing longyi crouched beside it. A brush was seen in his hand and he just recolored the body. His face was so serious that he seemed to do this task in a prudent manner.

When I saw him, he painted white color on the boat. And I found some other colors were also painted on the body. I thought it was different from Japanese to paint various colors on the boats. Most of the Japanese preferred simple variation of colors. By way of contrast, the Burmese people seemed to like the multiple colors.

In fact, the national flag of Myanmar also used also some colors. It was said that the yellow meant the union of a national solidarity, the green meant a rich environment and the red meant a courage and a determination. Besides, the white star drew in the center expressed a sense of togetherness. So he might want to signify a sense of togetherness by painting white color.
