A tire was placed and an eye was drawn on every bow

Shot at a small fishing village in Dalah, Myanmar.

The dwellings were built along the side stream of the Yangon river. This place was a small fishing village. Walking on the riverbank, I found many wooden fishing boats there. They were moored silently and the fishermen seemed to be in off-duty hours. According to the number of fishing boats, I knew many fishermen lived on fishing in the wide Yangon river.

Approaching the boats, I found some things. A tire was placed on every bow of the fishing boat. And round eyes were drawn. These tires were attached as an impact absorber. Yet I didn't understand why these eyes were drawn. I saw the same eyes in Vietnam. Maybe they were talismans against evil. Working on the water could be much dangerous than working on the land. So they drew the eyes to hope to return to this village safely.
