Pointing Statue

Statue pointing at the entrance

The statue was pointing inside

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

A statue of a monk was standing at the entrance of a hall in the precinct. It was pointing at the inside of the hall with an emotionless mask.

When I looked at the inside, I found a Buddha statue being stationed at where it pointed. I thought it told me not to miss the statue because it kept pointing the Buddha statue day after day. Viewed in this light, the lack of expression might be a sign of self-confidence. So I deferred him.
