Inside a Buddha statue workshop

Skills

Thailand produces some of the most magnificent Buddha statues that I’ve ever seen. The craftsmanship is truly excellent.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to visit a place that we can see how Buddha statues are being made. The place is located in Northern Thailand

Shop where Buddha statue is made

A lot of work has to be done. Example, the Buddha statues on both the pictures above and below are made of marble- first, a huge marble stone is bought and carved from stratch.

This is an example of an almost finished Buddha statue. We asked the owner- it is sold at a shop near Mae Sai for about 350000 or 380000 baht (RM35k to RM38k).
